 Yes it is.

Alas, Jim, you can say it loud and you can say it proud and you CAN SAY IT IN ALL CAPS but I don't agree. Period. PERIOD.

But that doesn't make you a bad person. As the early 1950s SF movie "The Twonky" stated, "it is your God given right to be wrong." Based on a Henry Kuttner short story and starring Hans Conreid (IIRC), the movie has little to recommend it beyond this philosophical statement. But, hey, its been a pretty handy thought that I've hung on to for all these years.
