Just a though

There is an old Italian proverb which says, "It is not for the blind to give an opinion on colors." And a great man once said that opinion is the lowest form of intelligence. This is a motto that everyone should remember. Now, don't misunderstand me. Opinion is everyone's privilege, and all are entitled to theirs. However, an opinion based on anything besides solid fact, or a factual opinion biased by emotion, should be kept to oneself. Few things appear more nonsensical than an ignorant person trying to pass off their opinion as fact. Neither should you state an opinion without knowledge to back it up. Not only will this save you from embarrassing situations later, but remember that everyone has role models, and you may unknowingly lead someone astray with incorrect information.
So remember. Opinions, when factual, practical, relevant, or well-based, are fine. Otherwise, keep them to yourself.
