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.

And if Lee could upbraid someone who had said disparaging things about Grant in front of him, then I repeat, you'd think the rest of the South could move on.

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

When I toured Fort Sumter about 15 years ago, the tour guide wouldn't refer to the "Civil War". He called it "The War of Northern Aggression". I found that pretty humorous.

Of course I have had my mind changed. Fortunately there are still enough intelligent people here to enlighten anyone in different areas. To say otherwise and act omniscient is just lame. Unfortunately the forum is still dominated by posters that are either clueless, trolling or just completely committed to their own madness no matter what. The most frustrating poster is the last as there are some bright people in there but you can never reach a conclusion on a subject where logic crosses their belief of what is or should be.

I said as much in post 123 I was surprised when I moved down here that The "War of Northern Aggression" was used. Only Yankees call it the "Civil War"

One thing I have learned from here is that there are also LWNJ out there. I was always familiar with the RWNJ type, but the others are something I more recently encountered through this forum in the form of a few posters as well as some of the obscure politicians out there that are discussed.

Seriously?

And that's part of the National Park Service? So he draws his pay from the federal government?

Perhaps he viewed his pay as some sort of espionage. But he seemed relatively serious about the term. It wasn't a joke.

Nah, I believed you. But you'd figure the National Park Service wouldn't permit that. The exams to become one are quite rigorous I understand.

I noticed a difference between what you hear from tour guides at Jesse James historical sites here in Missouri and the one at the old bank up in Northfield, MN. Around here there's a recognition that they were outlaws, but the fact that they focused most of their larceny against Northern interests wins them a bit of cover as either insurgents motivated by civil war atrocities or even robin hoods depending on who's telling the story. Can you believe the Northfieldians called the James boys terrorists?
