The point had to do with how informed an opinion is, not what it is. It stands to reason that one's opinion of a literary work they have read would be held in higher regard than that of someone who has not read it...at least, by those that are generally reasonable.
Only if it was expected that everyone would share the same opinion. And if you ignore that all the other reviews would have to be held in the same "regard" because the reviewers have also read the book....even if they are not the same as Josh's. You would then have to give the same amount of credibility to all reviews equally....including the ones that don't support your opinion.
True. The opinion in and of itself doesn't matter. Those with like experiences in forming one, however--in this case having read a literary work--are afforded the same credence regardless of what they actually think of it.
Your only point in this is to support Josh.
I don't have a point, per se, so much as I am simply interpreting something someone else said.
**And just a side note.....ROFL....you all don't even know what you are arguing about....
That's good, for I am not arguing.
I was just curious how long you would carry that on and how long until you, fos, jumped on the bandwagon without reading.
I'm sure you were. Since I'm not addressing opinions in and of themselves but rather attempting to clarify something someone else stated, there is no need for me to read, offer an opinion on it, much less argue about it.
Apparently neither you or Josh bothered to read "all" of what Johnny had said..........or maybe Josh just only used a small excerpt of what was actually said so his comments would look justified....................[/color]
No, I didn't read all of what Johnny said. One last time--I read what Josh said.
[color=#0000BF]So you see, this was all about an unreasonable and unwarranted attack on Johnny and an opportunity to make some derogatory comments about other people. See, what he said was not unreasonable or uniformed, afterall.
I'll say, you always did have a keen eye for what did and didn't constitute an attack.
