Huh. Writing a post before I crash for the night is perhaps not always the wisest thing to do. I could have phrased things a little more clearly. I apologize. I was very tired at the time and my communication filter shuts off around 9 PM.
"Many" was too strong a word. I'd just finished reading several posts where replies had contained the opinions that were stated as fact, and it bothers me when people do that. I was raised to be a fact-checker, and that's what I do. If I don't feel I can win an argument with facts to back me up, I generally won't get into it.
The replies that bothered me so much were phrased in such a way as to make the poster feel like an idiot, saying "I'm right and you are wrong, therefore you are going to hell, as are all these other people who don't understand the TRUTH." I find that to be offensive. Why? Because I hold my own opinions, of course. And quite frankly, making someone feel bad about something they came here asking advice for is pretty cruel and petty IMO.
I'm not saying people can't have differing opinions, just don't shove them down throats. That's all.
