Argumentum ad populum vs Peer review
Is there not some conflict in this thread concerning the value of an opinion? On the one hand, the opinion of the majority has absolutely no impact on the validity of a fact and on the other hand we rely heavily on the idea of peer review and the agreement of many is considered as verification.

To be clear, I seem to be aware of the difference but how would you define it?
