Oh, dear, please stop. My sides are killing me.

Wow. To say that a value judgement of an artist's approach to his medium isn't an opinion is pretty much like saying that water isn't wet. It can't be anything other
than an opinion. You are entitled to yours, and it may be quite valid; but it is eminently and irremediably an opinion and nothing more or less.

"Metrics" used to "judge" artistic endeavors? How can you read your own words and not laugh at yourself, especially considering the fact that you - apparently not in a joking manner - called a judgement
of an "artistic endeavor" objectively
anything? Read the following statement and let me know how ludicrous it sounds:
I don't like Alexander Calder's sculpture - further, I can say as fact that his art is objectively bad, and a metric that some guy just made up proves that his art is bad.
