Or a completely different point gets brought up that I didn't think about and you are on the fence now. Sometimes things are so black and white like we want

Sometimes I relize the other point of view and I'm not ALWAYS right so, yes.

Is there an archive for any of the questions or comments? Can we access them if there is? I usually check every day but sometimes questions get away from me and I like to share some of the results with people I teach and work with.

Yes, we need more intelligent, respectful comments. Nothing wrong with a spirited debate,
but not a mean-spirited one. We need a dumbass filter!

Once, I believed that I was a theist. But after extremely relevant, eloquent, and meaningful argumentation from a certain user named cowboy, it was revealed to me that nay, I was indeed not a theist but a communist.

Hey when I see other people's opinions and they make more sense than my own I change it. It taught me something new.

Oh my gosh! I just looked. There's seriously more comments on that stupid equation than on the LGBT question?! Seriously?!

It's still going on. At least it's slowed to almost a halt, or I'd have had a stroke by now. Or hurt somebody.

Especially on questions that don't totally apply (eg. aimed at only women or men), or on a few that I really don't know enough about the issue to answer.

EB, trying to stir the pot a little? :) BTW, 9, and I didn't need to change my answer, but after reading the comments, did work it the other three obvious ways just to be sure it wasn't a trick question. It was one of my favorites too.

The answer is 9, of course.

I did not take part in the discussion. I just sat back and followed it with great amusement.

@notRoss, could it be presented by a person you didn't know?

@EarlyBird, when I first read that question I immediately THOUGHT it was 3 x 3, just looking at it. I pressed "9", and upon reading the comments, lost all certainty! The profoundly (to me!) technical explanations made me unsure, but still, think I'm with you. 9.

I'm going to go change my answer to this poll because the comments reminded me that YES I did change one answer. I had forgotten. :)

Sometimes I misread a question, sometimes I learn something and change my position, and sometimes I'm torn between two responses that don't really fit. The recent question about the debt ceiling, for example. Either response could fit my view of either side, It took reading the comments to choose.

A perfect example of this is the math equation poll. It was seriously one of my all time favorites! I loved reading people defending their (wrong) answer to the end!

Well said! I would hate to be that person who is so closed minded that I can't learn something. As another poster said there are some really bright folks on this app. You should learn something new every day!! :)

I've changed my answer on a few occasions. Mostly because I was unsure of my initial selection. And there have been those times when I was CONVINCED I knew something, only to receive 'schooling' in the comment threads. There is some brilliant intellect here on SoH!

Pretty sure Tony will find that you have changed. He wants to know if you changed because of what you read from others on the poll.
