As an opinionated person I find it great that I can get my ideas out here and have an interesting cross section of people as a sounding board. I think it's actually helping me be present more in my, 'real life' conversations. Are you having a similar experience?

Regardless of what experience one has here, it is always interesting and enjoyable.

Not me but I still like this site.

I did find the same...when I put ‘stuff,’ out there...I work harder at what I mean and want to say! And, I have noticed that when confronted, I mostly do not take it as a personal assault! All of my opinions need not be validated and I am still entitled to them...that is a step-up for me!


You mean this isn't real life! I'm going to have to think about this.

Yes, the folks here seem to be open minded, sympathetic and encouraging. Any criticism is usually well thought out and offered in a positive manner, so we can hone our opinions for sharing outside the site, if any of these subjects come up. This site causes pauses for thought, for sure!

I mostly just use the site for political talks so that i can keep it out of my real life. get to talk about politics and religion right here and avoid it in my real life.

For the large majority of the folks on this site yes. smile001.gif

Note that this site is a very skewed section of society so the results of any poll wouldn't be a useful cross-section of society, but it is fun to ask & answer questions


No. But only because I use the site differently for you. I have less need to "get my ideas out there" or use the community as a "sounding board". I have done both, but they are not my primary reasons for being a part of this community.
But that's just me.

No, but I am honing my presentation skills. Must be honing them the wrong way though.


I haven't really thought about it, but I can certainly see what you are on about.
