From the Shadows: “Just My Opinion”
“It’s just my opinion” is meant to be a qualifier based in humility. It is meant as a way to invite discourse, and to allow room for other opinions. . . . It is not meant to be used as a shield to hide behind after you have chosen to lob a bombastic statement because you think your superior wisdom is going to batter down the walls of the opposing argument like a catapult stone.
