"...unless a judge compares notes and hears both sides...."

Over the years I have from time to time been amazed at how people in general and even some students of Theosophy jump to unwarranted conclusions because they did not do the following:
". . . unless a judge compares notes and hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision." The Theosophist, Volume II, July, 1881, p. 218; reprinted in H.P.B.'s Collected Writings, Volume III, p. 225
"...decisive opinions are often formed before a thorough examination of a subject from all its aspects has been made." The Secret Doctrine, Vol. I, p. xvii.
How many misunderstandings and even injustices are done because people ignore to do what HPB says?
HPB's words seem to be only common sense and yet far too many people don't do this.....
I realize that it may be easier and quicker just to jump to some conclusion without taking the time and effort to actually gather all the relevant facts, etc.
