Perhaps the issue is how what you say reflects who you are or at least who you seem to be.
I've already admitted some of my flaws. Now could you please address the question? It's said that saying things different than what many people think is "raining on their parade." I just don't see how anyone's parade can be affected by an unknown person on the internet.
For better or worse the internet is just another form of social interaction. People with whom we engage here are not known. In some respects we know them better than if we knew them face to face. So what people say here is mo different than what people say face to face. And any interaction affects those interacting.
So, again, please answer the question. If a person on the internet, or in person (even a friend), strongly disagrees with your love of a particular movie, does it affect your opinion of the movie. Is you parade rained on?
Almost every input affects one's point of view on whatever. But it would rarely rain on my parade. And I tend to avoid parades in any case. Aside from Pride parades which are always a lot of fun!
