With something subjective like the best band or the most delicious vegetable, every adult should be capable of recognizing it is an opinion.

DING DING DING DING. We've all encountered that smug adult.

 :police: Michael Jordan is the best basketball player of all time.

 :afro: Well, sir. That is merely your opinion. That is a subjective statement. There is no.............."best" basketball player. *puts one foot up on the stool and swirls brandy*

 :police:  :blank:  :huh:  :shocked:  >:(  Brad, F off.


Again, if you don't agree, then just say so. This is called "discussion."

I agree to the point that I think it's unnecessary to always preface a statement with "I think" or "It's my opinion"; these things can be understood in conversation by nuance and context.  By the same token, it always irritates me when you have that person who declares that everything they like a lot is "The best!"  This galbi restaurant is the BEST!  This beer is the best!  I think those people that take their limited experience and apply the word "best" to it need an occasional kick in the shnuts.  It's a douchey habit.  They need to learn to say things like "This galbi restaurant is great" or "This beer is one of my favourites."  People that are always trying to speak with absolute authority about certain things that are obviously subjective are annoying.  And that's a fact.

There's a great Louis CK sketch about how we go top shelf with words now with no nuance.

 :afro: Hey, guys. I brought a cup......in case we need a plastic cup.

 :huh: :huh: Brad, you're a GENIUS.

 :afro: ---->  8)  :cheesy: *smug smile*

The problem I have is when posters are above 26 years old and still cannot differentiate between fact and opinion. For example.
Gotta agree with Adel here. Those were opinions.

Like this one-
Quote
- the Dems are inept
in 2016? they def were. Hillarys campaign team was a mess and basically split into two camps (Bill Clinton/his friends/Hillary's old staffers vs. Robby Mook). along with the whole operation being completely disjointed she also stuck it out with the wrong side, ironically enough she would've been better off listening to Bill, who was more for lots of smaller events/talking to as many people as possible/etc, as opposed to Mook who basically ran much of the campaign off of advertising/social media.
Clearly the Dems being inept is an opinion. One could say they were "bumbling" or "ignorant" or "oblivious" or "fractured" or "afraid to go against their boss" or "shambolic" or any other number of things. And while those all sound like "inept" they have subtle differences and thus, that makes it opinion, not fact.

For the overwhelming majority of people—even those from privileged upper middle class backgrounds—workplaces will be far more invasive than most  governments.  They tell you what time to be there.  You have wear a uniform—whether a standard one such as they wear at McDonalds or only clothing deemed “appropriate” at a more flexible workplace.  You can quit and find work elsewhere, but you will have to think about healthcare and probably face similar problems.  Unless you’re a fantastic musician who enjoys writing catchy hit songs, you have to accept a huge chunk of your time being clocked and measured.  There’s almost always a top down hierarchy.

There is a very big difference in someone saying

A) The Beatles are the greatest band in history.

and

B) I think The Beatles are the greatest band in history.
IMO,  your statement is correct.
