“Some of us also don’t pick on other people’s issues for attention purposes. I personally don’t offer my 2cent on people’s matters simply because it is not my matter.

“I’m not a relative, so my opinion does not count. Also because I believe an opinion can be valid if you have all the information regarding the said matter.

 

“Now, how do you have that from the internet point of view?

“I know some people might be shocked, but people who live by the fear of God still exist.“If you’re too shallow to comprehend that, then seek understanding or shut up. It’s that simple.”
