    Yes, when I came here I thought there might be a few tea-baggers who were not mentally ill and were not total financial industry cheerleaders, turns out none of them are prepared to say a bad thing about anyone who uses a gold fountain pen rather than a gun to rob people.

    Actually yes. Hazelnut has done the near impossible and changed my mind on an issue. A month ago, I was convinced that he was an idiot. Lately, I've become convinced I was in error.
    In truth he is actually an insane idiot.

    it didn't used to be that way...

    and then people like you got here. *shrug*

    but in answer to your question. not on this board... but on another. i was convinced that the AWB was a dumbass, badly written and ineffective law.

    shall i assume you've never been open to changing your mind?

    There are a lot of savvy eloquent folks here on both sides of the ticket.
    As a result, I've gone from an AGW denier to an AGW fence-sitter.

    I guess you could call that "progress". :D

    I used to support term limits, but I believe it was Divecon who made the argument that changed my mind.

    I'd call it you realizing, just a little teeny tiny bit, what an idiot you've been.

    Congratulations.


    To answer the question, no. I've respected some people on this forum, but then realized that like the flip of a switch they can turn on the stupid and ear plugging mode. Like that one idiot who left the forum in shame. What was his name? Was it Liability?

    Used to respect him a bit. But then he acted like the total clueless asshat he was that made him have to leave the forum in shame. Totally confident denial, in face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary of his opinions.

    Yeah.

    By responding with a patent "no", you've shown yourself to be an even bigger idiot.

    I wouldn't have thought that possible! My mind has been changed again.
