I'm hoping you really are only referring to opinions like "this
project suxxors!!!!", and questions with 10 answers with variants of
saying that I should use Maperitive to render stuff. Because those
obviously can be deleted. But there is a limit sometimes you need to
let people vent their frustrations.

I hope that was the case because IM(not so)HO The worst kind of
opinions/answers there is are the ones that are stated like the
leading articles (editorials) in news papers, allowing the writer to
hide his opinions by taking extreme examples and over simplifications.
