My Opinion

26 February 2013, 13:05
In one of my previous articles my opinion was questioned.

But in the same article i stated that that article is pure drivel and cannot be taken seriously.

There was a hue and cry that the article was drivel, and that fact i stated at the beginning of the article.

I have noticed that certain users demand that i change my opinion and at that point i just wonder why must i go down their path.  My opinions are related to my experiences throughout my life and can hardly see someone, a “troll” expect me to turn to his childish ways even though i am older than him.  In the article above i added it must be seen as a tongue- in-cheek article.

Further, if i dare say, there are dozens of articles which appear every week on news 24 and most are not to my liking yet i do respect the author and his efforts. I may be eccentric, difficult, old and some epithets cast at me but i am still entitled to my opinions even if they are drivel or not consistent with what others expect from me. Imagine if i were to attack any user who produces religious articles for and against any aspects of religion.

Still 22 articles to go then all are rid of me and the troll Brigade will collapse. Drivel?
