Are We Killing Opinionated Content?

For those people who still buy a daily newspaper, they probably buy one that just strengthens their own political viewpoint. If you are on Twitter the chances are that you are surrounding yourself with people who have similar opinions, humour, interests and ideals as yourself.

We are surrounding ourselves with everything that we like and avoiding anything that we disagree with, are not interested in or that challenges our views. Does this mean that there is no room for real honest opinion on anything any more? Do publications that offer an honest article or review fear rocking the boat because of the impending angry mob that have traded in pitchforks and flaming torches for something much more powerful, known as the “unfollow” button? (Culture, Hitman: Absolution)

I didn't have time to read the article, but yes, I think we are killing it. These days you're not allowed to have an opinion on the internet that goes against the herd, and that's a shame.

IN particuilar, amongst the gaming "community", I've noticed that there's tolerence for people's opinions.
