I don't know how often adults change their mind about political issues but I do know it happens. I've changed my mind occasionally and I'm not the only person to have done so. I've known people to change their mind as the result of civil discourse but I've never known that to happen as a result of uncivil discourse.Don't people realize that you can never change an adult's mind on their politics ?
That's an excellent point probably for those who are thinking things they are forbidden to type. The easy way around that is to simply avoid thinking those things at least while participating at Nikon Cafe; everything in life doesn't have to be about politics. Personally, I spend most if not all of my time and energy attending to things within my control. Politics is rarely within my control so I spend little time thinking about it. I spend even less time talking about it because when I'm in the company of others there are so many more enjoyable topics to discuss, such as what's been going on in their lives.It makes you think of all the things you don't type, which ruins the no politics mood of the forum. ???
I don't want to assume whether or not you are being facetious so I'll reply. No, it does not. Someone stating that they are grateful for the forum not allowing politics is fine. Where we would go astray is when people start to bring specific politics into the thread. Or when we start comparing one country's politics to another's.Doesn't this thread itself violate the no politics rule? It makes you think of all the things you don't type, which ruins the no politics mood of the forum. ???
