yet another possibly ranty thread
question is, keeping in mind forum rules and proper decorum;
a) if a is giving rubbish comments about something, at least it is rubbish from your viewpoint
b) is there any wrong in stating your mind about this matter?
these days i see a lot of people hiding underneath the "it is my honest and humblest opinion" shield, and a lot of quack doctors who don't really know what they are talking about, at least they don't seem to at first sight.
yuh, some of you may find this arrogant, but when it comes to certain matters, at least on technicalities, i won't say i have the ultimate knowledge, but i would be confident enough to say that i know something about such things
so is it wrong to comment, really? certainly not good for forum "cohesiveness", but in the first place the people mentioned above had already broken the "unwritten contract" which would be provision of good, clear information which is accurate and reliable - and seeing how they did so in the first place, i question their reasons for doing so
i've gotten pm sometimes for the manner in which i make my posts - nowhere near people like deadpoet (in the past at least) or student (hurhur), perhaps i might be blunt, curt and sometimes brutal in speaking my mind
but do i really, really have to always put things in a nice way, when doing so would result in indirectness and a loss of conveyance of the general idea that i'm intending to express?
it's not that i care about the opinions of others, really, but i do see the originators of the pm as having good intentions
so what are your thoughts?
