    That would depend on the question. If you are asked for your opinion, you don't have to present the opposite side.

    Please note my corrections above. It's important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Never be in too much of a hurry to check your text and to end every sentence with a punctuation mark.

    We take a dim view of carelessness.
