Legit question. Think about it. Everyone give opinions, even if they know jack shit about the subject. Even if no one asked them. Even if they'll be ridiculed. Most replies are basically showing an opinion of something, regardless if you explicitly clarify you stance.

You'd think sitting down in the boat would be more beneficial to the individual than giving an opinion that might be disagreed with, yet most people don't care about the latter.

Give me your opinion on the subject. And if you get first post make it funny.

Because a lot of us care about others and get interested in their opinions, I think.

Are you talking about this in a general sense or on this forum?

Regardless, I think that more people need to know when to not express their opinions. Though forums makes it easier to express whatever opinion you have with little effect on you, so we get a lot more "muck" around here.

Also, has anyone typed out a reply to something and just thought "Eh, fuck it" and just not post it?

Soooo...leave?

I chalk it up to stupid people who think they need to be heard to be something, people who like screwing with the people who think they need to be heard, and the people who like watching the first two go at it, and comment accordingly to keep the arguments going.

Because most people on the internet are waking up to the fact that they are insignificant nobodies.

If they put their opinion on the internet, then they have at least made some sort of mark on the world, and that is really all they have. The less they know on the subject, the more important it is to them. The bright side, to them at least, is that they can always depend on a group of people who know nothing to form a mutual online support group.

It's not funny.

It's actually pretty pathetic.

And you can see it starting to branch out into the Real World as Occupy groups are formed out of the same idiots that are guided by people who's agendas they do not comprehend.

There's actually been a lot of studies done on the phenomenon.

A fair amount of what I write just gets deleted. I get all into writing out a response and then just before I press 'post reply,' apathy takes hold and I click the back button.

I was just talking about this with a few of my mates the other night. Weird.

You can't really help forming opinions on shit, it's just natural, but you should admit it if you haven't done your research on a subject and you might not know what you're on about. Then again, if someone does know (or claims to know) what they're talking about, you shouldn't just automatically take their word for it.

Stating your opinion even if you're clueless is fine for discussion. Arguing your point is fine if you accept the possibility you might be wrong. Problems arise when people form an opinion instantly on a subject, are absolutely convinced theirs is the only valid stance, and aren't interested in maybe learning something new.

I remember when I was a (awesome) mod/supermod, I would delete random peoples posts or change them to be embarassing. It was fun for everyone!

I post my opinions here because no one ever listens to me irl and here there's a chance someone might listen to me even if they disagree.
