The BBS is not Quora, nor is it Wikipedia. The same holds true for Boing Boing proper. Statements made here are opinions.
Recently, there have been several users attempting to rebut those opinions with literal statements that a comment is just your personal opinion.
To be clear, that is a given here. There is no need to post to that effect. Opinions that do not violate our community guidelines or espouse dangerous misinformation (“Drinking bleach will cure you” / “vaccines do more harm than good”) are welcome here. Pointing out that these opinions are opinions is redundant, unnecessary, and offtopic. Please don’t do that.
