Well, wow. Guess he told me my opinions are not welcome here.
You know, when I hear or read opinions, I mentally evaluate them for how much I agree or disagree--and why. Sometimes, I respond with my assessment of the matter. But I don't think I have ever told someone that their view was unappreciated unless it was stated with personal attacks, foul language, etc. But that's just me.
EDIT: Oooo...now I see the post was modified, and much of what I addressed above has been removed. My last thought is, if opinions are worth nothing, why do we ever offer them?
