…or my mind, at any rate. Usually somewhere in a Great Debate, someone will say, “well, nobody’s ever changed their mind anyway, so it doesn’t matter.” I think people do change their mind; I have. From reading this board, I’ve gone from being tenatively pro-gun control to more solidly pro-gun rights. And I’m about as liberal as they come. All the posters on the gun-control thread had good points, but I was ultimately swayed. I still need to do some research and thinking on the subject, but my position was changed.
As another example: The first time bantmof posted to a thread I thought he was a twit (sorry, dude) becuase he asked a question that I considered sufficiently asked and answered previously. Then I ran across some more of his posts, and my opinion went from “twit” to “not so bad” to “pretty darn smart after all”.
So how has your mind been changed here?
