There’s been a sort of devolution in the comment threads lately with people retreating to corners or focusing on negativity or any one of a number of other sub-dynamics that always strike me as odd when they happen to multiple sub-cultures of the blog all at the same time.
So “let’s go to a happy place”. Not a thread about something silly (although we should have more of those). A thread about what positive communications have worked for ya’ll.
In the spirit of Doc Russell’s Not-So-Silly-Tuesday Questions, I posit this head-scratcher:
Since you started reading the League, have you changed your mind about anything, due to a communication with anybody here? Front-pager or some member of the commentariat. You came to the League with an idea, or a notion, or a principle, or (probably in many cases) a completely unknown assumption, and after hashing it out with somebody else, either on a single post or over time (with or without hammer and tongs) you had a change of heart, or a lessening of a held assumption, or an actual “YES! Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ I Have Seen The Light!!” moment?
Especially for the silent lurkers out there! Moments of reading an exchange between two other people and having a lightbulb? Or even, “Hey, that gal said right there something that I’ve been trying to articulate for years and holy smoke that’s the idea that’s been in my head all this time!!”
Who? When? What was it about?
Talk about progress.
