Living in a democracy where everyone has the right to speak freely may lead one to believe that this is true but it is not. Two folks may have an equal right to voice their opinions, but the actual content of said opinions may be far from equally valid. I love the guys at my local bike shop and they turn a great wrench... but is their collective opinon on vintage steel worth even half of a Dale? Or a Brian? Or a Hillary? Not in my universe.

So let me make sure I've got this right... you're saying some opinions ARE better than others?
