This has been my favorite part of my experience here. I have actually changed my position on some pretty big subjects because of conversations I've had in the past here. I think regardless of what website you're on or even if you're having a conversation in person, the most important thing is to be open to new ideas and open to the possibility of having your ideas change. Too often people associate changing their opinions or ideas with weakness, but nothing could be further from the truth. To be able to say to someone "you know what, you make a good point and you have changed my thinking on this topic", is an amazing thing to say. In that situation you are most certainly the person that has "won". Btw, welcome to Hubski.
