No that is not wrong as the person is asking for opinions on something they have a potential interest in.
Usually the OP will say something like " I am looking at this horse to maybe buy" "What do you think"
That is totally different than when someone who never posted on this forum and their first post is of a "random" video they saw on Youtube and ask our opinions on a controversial subject. Is there a hidden grudge against the person owning the video? Are they trolling to get everyone's dander up ? Or is there some other motive?
