First off. Take care with that snow storm coming your way. Looks bad. "Even unqualified opinions are valid" Are you serious my friend. Answer me the question I posted that everyone ignored.. Here it is again. Would you seek out an opinion from someone that had no experience in what you needed info on? Or to stay in the same example you posted. If someone never drank Pepsi, do you think their opinion that it sucks is valid and useful? Mis-information is never good or welcomed in any circles. Why is this place different? Why would I need sugar? Because I hurt feelings telling the truth? If you have something to say with no background in the subject... Say so. This way others reading that opinion won't be mislead because the person happens to write well. Now tell me J... Do you think there is something wrong with that logic?
