You're opinion has no bearing, my opinion has no bearing. Reasoned argument, supported by logic and evidence is all that matters.

Your evaluation of the facts is an opinion. My evaluation of the facts is an opinion. Reasoned argument isn't a free-standing event, it is mediated through imperfect human communications. Does the opinion holder know enough about the facts to be entitled to an opinion? Any feeling associated with a statement of opinion would seem to be secondary to the transmission of the evaluation under discussion.
