If your only aim is to push your own opinion and you do not have an openness to listen to other people and exchange ideas in a valid way then there is no dialogue.
Contributors of this forum become then mere solopsists and the Aiki web forum nothing but an advertising agency.

If that were the case, maybe, but simply disagreeing with you or anyone else doesn't make someone a solopsist.

"Openness to listen to other people and exchange ideas" does not contain a requirement to accept those ideas. If it did then I would be able to accuse you of being a solipsist for not accepting my ideas.
