It wasn't until Nat kept saying "IMHO" that I really picked up on what it meant.

food for thought: It is impossible to state an opinion as a fact. A qualitative evaluation of any given thing is defined as an opinion. No matter how you present it, it will always be an opinion, a reflection of a persons thoughts on the object in question. Statements that are often thrown around, such as "well that's just an opinion" are meaningless, because any such take on something is going to be an opinion. If someone acts as if their opinion is a fact, it is because to them, it is. When someone here says "Lamb of God sucks,"(maybe not the most neutral example) they need not add an "IMO" at the end, because it is already an opinion by definition. And if you delve into what an "opinion" really is, it is the same thing as "fact," except that it differs on a per person basis. The person who says Lamb of God sucks - to them, such thing is a fact, rather than opinion. The difference between the two things only takes effect when applied on a less individual basis. Knowing this, there really can never be a logical reason to take offense at another person's opinion, or for them presenting it as if it were fact. I would presume that in doing so, the accuser is simply catering to their own insecurities.

jus' sayin'.

ahh my mistake then. i know everyone has an opinion, but it really irritates when a person states their opinion as a FACT, and means it as it really is a fact. like you don't have to say IMO, but many people nowadays state their opinion as fact like they're right and everyone else who doesn't agree is wrong. like an example someone could say "Lamb of God sucks and that is a fact, anyone who disagrees is an idiot." like some people view it as violating a law when they disagree with the statement.

Wu-Tang Clan's "36 Chambers" is the best hip-hop album of all time. That is fact. It cannot be disputed.
