    Since we are playing what if. If something is popular and best, than it is.

    But, I was either too circumspect, or you were dodging the question.

    Thus...

    Perhaps too circumspect.

    I thought it was a reasonable assumption that pretty much every post here, (at least those about politics) was someone's opinion. Given that opinion requires analysis of a fact, opinion can easily be wrong for a variety of reasons.

    Do some not share this assumption?
