Have you ever changed an opinion?

In reading in this forum, have you ever changed an opinion on any topic as a result of your own conversations or by observing the ones that go on here?

I don't think there is really a right or wrong answer, but I am just curious how many people have had a change in the way they think about or view any of the topics discussed.

The poll is a simply yes or no, so feel free to elaborate on the number of times this may have happened and the subjects that it happened with if you so choose.

I thought it was rather humorous how serious people still take it down here~

Yes. Hence the comment "every rhetoric student learned." AKA, people have been taught not to use logical fallacies since Plato.

Thanks for paying attention.

Run away like a coward? Is this where you display your bravery? It is clear bravery is something else you know very little about~

The phrase "every Rhetorical student since Plato" implies that Plato was a Rhetorical student.

Go back to English class, son.

The psychology of the South is very different from that of the rest of the country in large part due to that war. Or at least it was up until at least the 70s and 80s.

I honestly would have thought that was lessening. It's been 150 years, so we're getting on to 5+ generations removed....

Actually, yes, saying someone is unlikeable would be Ad hominem logical fallacy, were you attack the person instead of the message.

Like I've said, you never debate the message, just post logical fallacies. And you keep proving. Again and again. The logical fallacy machine that keeps on giving.

He was. He studied it. How do you think he grew to not like it? And he also taught his students on how to avoid it.

You do know Rhetoric was one of the major things studied by those who were educated back in the day, right?

Again, thanks for paying attention.

Yes, you are a coward. You make claims, can't back them up, then say "whatever" in a attempt to run away.

You have done this multiple times. You are a coward.

And that has nothing to do with me or what I think bravery is. But I love how you attempt to turn everything back on me, like a coward.

There's no enjoyment in debating you, you just flood the thread with paste jobs and histrionics. It's more fun to ridicule you because you're a giant turd.

That you're unlikable is fact.

There is a landmark downtown where some hangings took place. A handful of rebels deserted and joined the union they were later captured. There are still relatives of these men here in town and it is a touchy subject. They still catch crap about it to this day~

It's not a fallacy when the notion that you're unlikeable IS the message.

The movie The Confederate States of America is a big hit down there I would guess.

So, first, they should probably move. What the heck kind of small town, provincial, absurd BS is that?

I actually remember a book coming out (I didn't read it) about some small town in the South (Mississippi, maybe?) that sort of went Union. Again, I didn't read it, so I'm not up on the details, but the point is that just as the North had Copperheads and others who hated the war for various reasons, and/or supported the South, it wasn't like the South was 110% all in favor of the war either.
