I agree. It's when opinions become objective statements that disagreements and arguments erupt. It's better to say something like "geocaching is dying for me because there are far more caches I don't enjoy now than there used to be", rather than "geocaching is dying because this type of cache is ruining the game", etc. Clearly, people are enjoying what other people are not, so it's not necessarily dying for them. The former claim is something that at least can be addressed ('well then place more of the types of caches you like, or encourage other people to'), whereas the latter is highly argumentative and just draws people into a downward defensive spiral. (at least, the ones who don't just shrug, enjoy what they enjoy, and let other people duke it out =P) Edited May 11, 2018 by thebruce0 Quote Link to comment
