I want your opinion, comment on this please.

I want to start a web page. It is a very simple premise. I will call it “You like WHAT?” or something like that, and the idea is to provide a forum where people explain why they like what they like. For example, “You like Marilyn Manson?!” For many people it is completely inconceivable that anyone could like this. So I provide a neutral forum where I explain the things I like, you explain the things you like, etc. We all like something, and odds are we have a reason to like it. If we share our reasons instead of just throwing our finished-product opinions around, maybe it will help us all to understand each other. In this the age of the clique, of niche-art and elite tastes, it seems to me at least that aesthetic intolerance is on the rise.

Do I sound obnoxious as I write this? Cuz I don’t mean to be, but I recognize the danger. My purpose isn’t to lecture or educate anyone – but for instance, I don’t really understand visual arts. Someone explain to me why Andy Warhol is famous? Or, what do you like about Hoobastank? Etc.

The idea is, I have my opinions and you have yours, and we have our opinions about each others opinions. This isn’t necessarily here to change anyone’s mind per se, let’s call it opinion validation. If you really must hold opinions, and you happen to be the sort of person who wants your opinions to be responsibly formed, maybe a website like this will help you. It’s secretly for my benefit.

What do you guys think?

Comments:
Nice idea. It sounds interesting, but I'm not sure if it would work. The website would probably just turn into a collection of flame wars as people called each other stupid/lame/retarded/whatever for their miscellaneous tastes.

I don't know. If you could do it without requiring any money, it'd be worth a try.
