Searching for Useful Opinions

Sometimes it is difficult to find useful opinions, no matter how much exploring we do, whether online or in life.  How do you know when you have found a useful opinion?

Being able to distinguish between facts and opinions is a good starting point, in my opinion.  For example, I usually like the comments on my blogs to be essentially factual rather than just a matter of opinion.

Mow Cop - An example of fact and opinion

How do you distinguish between fact and opinion when writing about family history, planning a holiday, developing a business, working out what to eat, or making any other important decision?

I especially appreciate historical insights.
