Just like when you write a myTake. There is an option for "no opinions wanted", so no one can leave an opinion.
Sometimes when I'm here I just want to leave my opinion, and don't want a discussion based on my opinion. Especially if the QA constantly comments on my opinion just because he/she can't accept my honest opinion. Then it's just annoying. I don't want to have to block everyone so I don't constantly keep getting notifications, but the constant pointless back and forth is just really tiring.
Do you think GAG should add an option for "no comments wanted" when we leave an opinion on a question?
Based on your other comments, I feel similar with regards to that impression left behind when you don't back up your opinion. It's knowingly silly to feel like the last person to talk is in the right, but it's still annoying. That's the thing though, arguments online are such a huge waste of time, nobody is impressed by anyone's ability to go back and forth. I'd go so far as to say it's more of a reputation and ego thing than anything else.
The QA constantly not accepting opinions is a problem that will never go away. So while I would really love this idea, I doubt it's implemented just because I assume the site encourages discussion. What GaG should do, amongst many other things, is to hide heavily downvoted opinions.
Yeah but the complication than is: what if there's a simple misunderstanding? Now you post a comment and say "sorry, I should have expressed myself differently, what I wanted to say was...". Plus: the GAG policy says they stimulate healthy discussions. The problem is, that some users only want to hear one type of opinion. I've had a discussion once regarding fossil fuels. It was the entire GAG community against 1 guy who denied that global warming existed. So frustrating.
Considering this site is girlsASKguys the purpose would be for you to ask questions for the purpose of getting answers. If you want to just spew your ideas you are probably at the wrong site, and should look at finding a site that is geared towards rants and opinions.
You don't have to answer, but I like to tell someone why I don't agree and if they don't want to reply they don't have to, I don't think it's a necessary feature. Notifications are so easy to ignore and so easy to get rid of.
