← Two equally bad fallacies

My own particular annoyance is that too many times, people consider all opinions equally valid.

To be of significance, the holder of an opinion needs to demonstrate that he or she has the wit, training, and open-mindedness necessary to make the dissemination of said opinion a net advance for civilization. The more valueless an opinion, the more likely it seems that picked up and repeated.

Unfortunately, I've probably just proven my own point...
