tagging a thing objectively bad w/o proof is objectively bad (DBO)

I had to work hard to get that all into the title...

Anyway, based on your post I believe you are describing something that is subject, not objective.

I'd actually put that line of communication down as what is sometimes seen as "negative". When you say that you "think" it's bad, it's an opinion, and I believe most of us here value opinions. If you say "This is objectively bad" you are stating a truth of the universe, thus implying that what should be a disagreement between individuals is instead communicated as being simply wrong, and holds no truth.

If you start an argument with me by stating that you hold the truth of the universe (instead of an experience within it) you are invalidating my opinion before we even get started.

Now, my examples and word definitions don't hold true for everything (such as science), but since this is all in the context of a video game and human communication, I believe it to be apt.
