I'm of the opinion that if you want one, you should tell us yours first

I believe that unemployed people and people on low incomes should be provided with the highest standard of housing at a means assessed rate.

I believe that there should be a limit on the number of threads somebody can create when they don't then generally participate in said threads.

That's not unpopular, it's probably one of the most popular opinions here at the moment

I have what seems to be an unpopular opinion that a single thread on a specific topic should be enough.

I don't think there should be any obligation for signs and services to include the Irish language. I say that as a gaeilgeoir. Nobody needs it. Probably <5 people in the world are monoglot Irish speakers. (Monoglot = only speaks the one language)

French or Polish would be much more useful.

Edit to add: just googled it. There are actually 0 Irish monoglots in the world.

I had to google monoglots and I agree. For those also not in the know, a monoglot is a person who only speaks one language

God, I didn't even think about it not being a common term. Hopefully that's clearer. Thanks Paddy
