In your time here, have you changed your opinions on certain subjects due in part to the arguments(for or against) presented here? In areas such as religon, politics, social issues, scientific issues, etc etc. Discuss.

I would imagine that if this place did influence me at all, it would be in a negative fashion.

Not really. I don't post that often for there to have been any significant influence.

OT influenced me to join FAU which exposed me to a lot of movies I wouldn't have otherwise seen, so in that regard yes.

The only opinion that off topic has changed of mine, is that people are generally dumber than I originally thought. There are some sad, lonely, individuals out there.

When I was younger and the only things I knew about homosexuals were from the intolerant people around me and TV, it shedded some light on them.

No, I barely come here anymore because I realized there are really only like 5 people here who use different accounts. The only thing cool here is you can get some news earlier than they do on TV.

Honestly I'm embarrased to say yes. Though generally the majority of debates are stupid there are some good ways of arguing a point here that I've probably been influenced by.

I live in a fairly homogenous part of the world so OT has been a way to see other's opinions on issues that I normally wouldn't get to see, especially users from other countries. I wouldn't say it's changed me really all that much but it has helped give me a bigger view of the world

In a slight way. I have a clearer understanding of different views and opinions, etc, but other than that HELL NO!

Uh, no. My views are my own. However, OT definitely helps feed my sociopathic desires. I love posting things just to see what people will say.

Yes.

After enrolling in college and meeting some really great people, my idea of average human intelligence was delusionally high. I started lurking OT like a month later and I was brought back to realism. So many complete and utter imbeciles on this board, logic seems like a completely foreign and abstract concept. I wonder how the Founding Fathers would feel if they could see their great nation now.

GameSpot at one time influenced my sense of humor. I admit, I am a less naively cheery person now, but other than that, I am the same exact person I would've likely been without GameSpot.
