Does anyone ever say "Yes, you're right. I hadn't thought of it that way" on Fluther?
We are a relatively civilized but often combative group and generally smarter than the average bear. Yet consistently most questions – of almost whatever sort – seem to devolve into two people insulting each other. (The only exception seems to be dating question where we usually universally agree the answer is “Move on.”) I just wonder if we ever change each other’s minds and if we can’t, what hope is there for the country?
Asked only half tongue in cheek (which isn’t easy to do!)
