Re: Cut the cord...
said by dslfan90 :No, it doesn't. Support needs to be provided when trying to determine whether something is a matter of opinion or a matter of fact. Whether I like pasta more than fish is a matter of opinion. Whether pasta or fish is better for the heart is a matter of fact. If I tell my doctor that I like pasta more than fish, and that's my opinion, he'll thank me for the information. If I tell him that pasta and fish are equally good for the heart, and that's my opinion, he'll tell me that's not a matter of opinion. When he offers facts to disprove what I'm saying, I'll look like a fool telling him that the effects on my heart are just a matter of opinion. Whether any particular thing is a matter of opinion is itself a matter of fact. You state that it is a matter of opinion as to whether using the internet is better than watching TV. That, and not your opinion itself that they are equally good, is what \I'm asking for support about.
