In other fora, if you make any statement whatsoever that is not an Indisputable Absolute Fact, you will immediately have three to five guys yelling at you: That is just your d*** opinion! Don't present it as a fact! Others may think differently!

You have this yelling even if the context clearly indicates that the statement is a personal reaction or opinion. If I say that "J.S. Bach was the greatest composer of all times", any reasonably witted person would know that this is my opinion, not 100% neutral Fact. But in some fora, the statement is invalid. Whether I use imho or spell it out, "In my opinion, J.S.Bach was the greatest composer of all times", every opinion must be guarded this way. Not too long ago, I stated two opinions, in the same paragraph. The first one was guarded; for the second one, I didn't repeat the guard that started the paragraph. Yet I was attacked for presenting personal opinions as if they were facts.

So, in some fora, the style is prefix any judgement, opinion or other reference to non-Absolute-Facts with ihmo or similar guard. But it variaes from one forum to the other.
