Comment Re:when dissenting opinion is a bad thing (Score 2) 600

Some times it is a bad thing.

A dissenting opinion which has no evidence to back its claims has little to no value.
When the proponents of that dissenting opinion misrepresent the scientific method to fool the science illiterate masses, it is a bad thing.
Several dissenting opinions we hear now days holds on by plain deception.

The point of running slackware is compiling from source when you don't find a build/package for some application.
I don't say slackware doesn't supports X until I try to do:

./configure
make
make install

If you don't want to go that far, may be you should check other distro. This "missing package" for some app or driver will keep happening.
