I love this,
in my opinion its really good.. you dont have to pm people, because most likely they'll get creepy at some point.
I think its also good if you don't want to be judged by other gag'ers you just want the asker to see your answer/ and or comment.
do you like this feature?
why or why not

Nope I don't like it. If I go on to a question that allows only private opinions, I leave and go to another question. It feels weird answering stuff like that.
Not to mention that if I was afraid of community anger, I'd go anonymous and/or PM. I feel like most people don't mind you PMing them about advice and legitimate asking for help.
It also allows abuse. I. e. A how do I look question with a female saying "can you rate me 1 to 10." Not too uncommon, right? Private opinions allows users to go like "I'd like to fuckity fuck da fuck *insert explicit content* you." Most cases, mods would report it, or someone brings it to the mods attention and so on... Yet now, the question asker can only report it, which who knows if it would get deleted or not.
It was generally unnecessary. I like the idea/theory behind it, but we already have anonymous ability for that and I believe anonymous would work better for a site like GAG. It is too easy to exploit.1
