I suppose opinions are subjective enough that one may never be wrong. I feel that my own opinions are sometimes wrong though, just today I admitted to being wrong about olives not being tasty on pizzas.

If you had actually thought of it yourself it would have maybe been clever. A "me too" vote doesn't get you any more credibility Haggis. ;)


I thought we already established that I only skim discussions you're part off.

Anyway, I guess someone already pointed out to you that ad hominem is not the same as name calling?
