A statement of FACT can be proved TRUE or FALSE.

A statement of OPINION is what someone believes or thinks. There may or may not be a good reason to think this way.

Words that give you clues that a statement is an opinion are believe, like, and should.
These words express how someone feels.

Fact: Superman is a Super Hero comic character!
Opinion: Superman is a super Hero comic character.

This sentence, when analyzed from different perspectives, can be either a fact or an opinion.

Differences in opinions are many in Comic Collecting, and this is a fact!

Are you a Collector or a Seller/buyer?

This is a thing I notice a lot on CCL and everywhere. All of us are collectors on here, but some of us put more importance on the sales or purchasing value of a comic.
Some collectors want their comics to be vary valuable, and this is the most important goal in their collecting.

Other's want to collect comics for the story.
Still others for the artwork.
Some want rareness to be important.

This is our world of Comic Collecting. It is a world of variables and opinions. One person says a comic is crap! Another person says it is great! One says it is NM/MINT, the next collector says it is not, it is VF. Still, another says a comic with a barcode is no different than one without a barcode, but it is a fact, the comic with the barcode will never be a comic without a barcode, unless you tear off the cover. LOL.

And then there is the car sales man, and the person selling a car. How are these different? The Salesman wants you to spend. The person selling the car wants you to pay more. But the buyer, wants to pay less, and get more for their money. The fact is, there is a car here. It is a red car, fact! Is the car ugly if you do not like Red cars?
Is a Blue car more valuable? Not if you hate blue cars.

So, what is the point of this thread?
Fact! I like writing threads! Fact! I collect comics. Fact is I buy and sell comics. Fact, I want to pay less for the comics I value most. I value the comics I want. I have no value for the comics I do not want to collect. I have great value in the comics I want to sell. I want more money for the comics I want to sell. LOL

WHOA, I even made myself dizzy with that one. Wall
