Except for trolls - what a poster post is what he believes. It may be
something that can be checked easily (the capital of North Dakota), or one which
is harder to quantify "that process is stupid".
Occasionally, adding a confidence factor is meaningful. "If things haven't
changed, the company I worked for 5 years ago still uses CoBOL".
But I can say:
"I believe Bismark is the capital of North Dakota"
"I believe the "C" is the capital of Colorado".
"I believe CoBOL is a dead language"
"I believe GO TO is harmful".
"I believe Connecticut is the capital of North Dakota".
But my "I believe" didn't really add anything.
