An opinion can be considered true or false depending on the opinion of the person considering it.

An opinion is subjective.
A fact is immovable.
So to some people, an opinion is true, and to others, it is false.

An opinion will probably be true/false by consensus.

It can't be true/false, that would make it a fact. But it can be valid/invalid. But when you go deep enough into an opinion, it will always turn up invalid.

No, an opinion is a point of view.

However, an opinion can be unreasonable and/or ignorant.

you can think your opinion is right, and it is your right to have an opinion, but fundamentally it is an opinion based on personal preference whereas a fact is based on substance, so yes an opinion can be false.

full marks for that answer I reckon.
