Can an opinion be dumb?

I understand that an opinion is very personal and just what it is...an opinion.

I had someone on here get very upset because I said that "opinions can be dumb".  As I was reading a post just now, I once again saw the infamous CM comeback "Well, it is my opinion."

In my own opinion, opinions can be very dumb.  What makes an opinion dumb? Well, when someone does not bother to educate or inform themselves on a topic at all or forms an opinion without any direct knowledge or experience with a topic, it can be dumb.  I actually see it on here over and over again.

Opinions are meant to be formed after you gain knowledge or information on a topic to actually give you some insight or perspective.

 I often wonder about those who dont' want to learn or understand, then I think why reply with a dumb reply? I don't know, maybe my opinion isn't always the brightest. But I like to discuss things so I can find out more of the topic and what others think or feel about something.

Yes they can be dumb... especially when they are based off of nonsense.

i say if someone doesn't agree with the opinion given, they can move on to another topic or someone else's opinion.

 I think it depends on the person giving the opinion. If you have a stupid person telling you what they think about something, then you'll probably get a stupid opinion from them...
