Some people, many infact, who post on these forums are not native english speakers.
In how many languages can you express yourself as fluent as they can in english ?

I grew up with english speakers, most only know their mother tongue.
Elitism is always a pain but it really hurts when coupled with ignorance.

I would say that if you see Honest Opinion in the title that its a post bashing the game based on personal preferences.

"Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

I don't know about anyone else, but for me:

I always give my honest opinion. When I say "My honest opinion is" it's a great big warning that I am not going to sugar coat it, and I'll probably be honest to the point of rudeness. (eg: My honest opinion is that your butt does look fat in those jeans. vs Hrm, I don't think those jeans are flattering, you should wear that cool pair you wore to the party the other night.)

The one that gets me is "In my opinion". Well duh, of course it's your opinion unless you preface otherwise, or you're a stooge. If anyone catches me using it, they are free to mock me.

Edit: Incidentally, when people ask "What's your real opinion?" and my answer might be insulting, I usually ask how much sugarcoating they want.

People, including me, will complain about anything. If BioWare sent us all $100 in thanks for playing TOR, inevitably someone would complain about how the bill was folded or if it was new enough to include the lastest anti-forgery options. That said, I prefer mine folded in half, and with all the neat bells and whistles.
