You never know. I tend to give those folks the benefit of doubt and extrapolate that whenever they give an opinion but don't qualify it with "honest," they are full of it.

Seriously though, I think they often are preparing folks for a longer than usual post but don't want people to comment without reading. Poor language usage in any case. (Oh, my. I made that mistake too.)

True - but it's still annoying. Do you think, for instance, that the French would allow their language to be mangled like that?
Didn't we just leave this party?

For the Grammar Queens, did you understand what the person said even with the grammatical errors? Yes? Then why bother commenting?

In my HONEST OPINION, all it does is make you look silly if all you can do is critique grammar instead of content.

*edit* And we all know the (cough) English Language is a cluster ****** mish mash of several languages.

The French don't allow anything.

All it means is that they generally don't tell the truth and they really want to make sure you fall for it this time. Like this guy.

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?
Because some people do not have an honest opinion based on what they REALLY believe but rather what is either the popular opinion to have at the moment or it is not really their opinion to begin with.

For example:

If I come to this forum and say I hate Bioware.

Everyone attacks me and say they love Bioware.

Then I change my opinion of Bioware to, "I love Bioware" to go along with what I feel is the majority consensus.
