What the hell do people mean by an "honest opinion"?

I've seen this term thrown around a lot lately in regards to SWTOR and I'd like to know. What the hell do people mean by an "Honest Opinion."

Are you implying that other opinions are dishonest? Are people going to lie to you and tell you that it is better or worse than it really is?

They are trying to say that they are not trolling.

Violet, we're all compulsive liars. Those who give their "honest opinions" are apparently the only ones trustworthy enough to break said compulsions.


Or rather, they feel that by adding "honest" to "opinion" they negate stigma attached to the fact that their opinion is about to be a negative one in hopes that people will receive it better. This approach always backfires.
Cadiva: The fundamental thing I have to ask is "am I enjoying playing this".

The only person who can tell you whether or not you should resub for TOR is you.

You don't need to tell me that you aren't trolling. The content of your "opinion" should suffice for seeing whether or not you're a troll.

For example,

Not troll: "I find the end game content to be lacking and some of the crafting professions to be useless."

Troll: "This game will close or go F2P by the end of the month."

The Internet works like this:

In my opinion = you are full of **** and should die

In my HONEST opinion = you are still full of **** but we will at least read a TLDR version of your post.

Someone needs to go back to school to learn the difference between they're, their, and there.
