    I guess I've probably had to tell you this before, since your name looks familiar, but if you'd slow down instead of trying to start the insult game, you'd see my point was that you are arguing semantics. Now that I know you're serious: how tacky. If you really wanted to know the inner workings on what formed an opinion, surely there's a better way than passive aggressive wordplay, no?

    Okay, going to break this down piece by piece.

    It began here.

    Note the name. alemaite. I reply to this with:

    Someone else entirely replies:

    The most relevant part: a report of facts or opinions

    So while it's true that IMO means In My Opinion, an opinion is a statement.

    Thank you, and have a nice day.
    You reply to that with:

    Now, if I am reading this correctly, you are replying to my pointing out the fact that an opinion is a statement as defined by the dictionary, as me arguing semantics over an opinion. This is not true. This is me correcting someone in the definition of statement as meaning, among other things, an opinion. Hence my reply:

Someone else entirely replied IMO=Opinion, not statement, so I posted to clarify that, yes, an opinion is a statement, so my question still stands. No further information about said statement/opinion has been forthcoming. Read more carefully, please.
    Again, the person who said the game sucks has not responded, so calling me out for something I did not do, to wit:

    Yep. Hashing words. Arguing semantics. I'm just calling a spade a spade here.

    Okay, that's enough out of this thread. The question in the OP has been answered commented on, and debated thoroughly.

    Bury your guns, Gentlemen.
