"I think" that analyst might be a criminal because he did this or he did that. Isn't that correct? The key words here are;" I think and might be".

This is an interesting question, do you really have to say those words?

If I am talking to people, not as a paid speaker or expert, and make no claims to that effect, then won't they automatically think it's just my opinion? In court, my opinion would be objected to by a lawyer as being "heresay".

I am of the belief that, in that same, way, everything on a message board is by default opinion, unless the person makes some claim as to being an expert or claims "I know for a fact that this is true". This is because a message board is just a public forum, and the readers know the other posters are just average joes like themselves.
