There is nothing in the TOS that requires knowledge. Did you just get involved in a political post? :)

So if someone makes a post and gives their opinion and most consider their opinion to be utter Bollocks , then there is room for discussion and educating that poster.

I don't know personally because I like to have the facts under my belt before I state any opinion but I don't think it leads to embarrassment but then I wouldn't go out of my way to embarrass someone for giving False information on an opinion site , maybe others do.

IF it was a situation in RL where I asked someone that I thought was Knowledgeable in a certain subject and they gave me False information , then I'd be pissed.

Opinions should be somewhat knowledgeable. If you need more knowledge on a subject go on it just to read...but don't make an opinion.

You can make a comment just to support someone...but not a qualified opinion.

Can you make an informed opinion based on other people's Opinions? (OPO) It is half-hearted at best.

No one has been to Mars...so if you are talking about it, well then everyone will be in the same boat.

But if you are talking about - let's say - an addiction...let's say caffeine, drugs or the Internet...it helps to know what you are talking about....

But if you merely read and never apply your reading to conversation, you don't know how much you retained. When conversating, you may realize you retained a lot less than you thought you did. So it serves as a further learning experience to accompany the reading.
