It depends on what the opinion is about, but sure it could be.


For example, if someone was to say this below....

"In my opinion, you should always do a clean install when you have any problem with Windows to fix it."

While it's just an opinion of one person, it would be considered wrong according to the majority of the public.

Morally and ethically an opinion can sometimes be wrong. A pirate downloading all his music, movies and software thinks it's OK. He has right to have that opinion, but because it's clearly illegal, it's also morally and ethically wrong. However, this does not mean the criminal in question does not have right to think as he does; one cornerstone of a free world is that everybody has the right to have an opinion in everything.

In a free society, I can think whatever I prefer, form opinions not based on facts but on feelings. In my opinion my wife is the absolutely most beautiful and sexy person ever lived in this world. I honestly believe that, but I bet you have another opinion. I know I'm right in this but because I understand that you as a free person have the same right to have an opinion as I do, I have to accept that yours differs from mine, that in your opinion my opinion is wrong.

Strange question...

Opinions are mostly wrong. Stick to the facts.

That's your opinion.
My opinions are the only ones that count.
My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts.

Who is to judge if the opinion is wrong or right?

Opinions are generally subjective statements or thoughts about issues & as such are the result of emotion or interpretation of "facts."

Hitler's opinion was that the Jews were the scum of the earth. That pretty much convinces me that opinions can most definitely be wrong.
