I've been browsing through a lot of people's questions and the opinions that followed and I've noticed a certain pattern... Whenever there are no opinions posted on a question, the first opinion seems to influence everyone else's opinions no matter how many other possibilities there may be to answer a question. My question to all you GaGers, are you truly being honest with your opinions? or are you using the first written opinion as a scape goat to not write your own?
I usually never read others opinions before I start answering. But you are correct in your observations, I notice sometimes the answers seem to formulate around someone elses personal opinion (usually that person is one of the first answerers). I am always very honest and at times, I have been attacked because I don't say what's socially acceptable or give an opinion another would like to hear. My thing is, if you don't like other people sharing their comments then why join a site like this in the first place? Whether you are an asker or another commenter, why get mad because someone doesn't share your view? Very immature.
