Personally, I'd rather sneak up on someone and get them to agree with me on something political than wave banners proclaiming my allegiance to a team. Do I do it well? Not really. I think I can un-motivate people from voting against my point of view but I dunno how many minds I have really changed. Still though, I don't go around chanting this or that sucks in my signature warning people whatever I type is almost certainly slanted a particular way. So my main goal of being here is to read opposing view points and see if they sway me. By this point in the game they usually don't but perhaps they moderate my point of view when presented well. If someone is out and about calling people names it makes me question the maturity of folks with their point of views. Just saying.
