What are some things, since joining this site, that you have learned from? This can also be a member related experience. Are there any specific members that have changed your view-points? Has DDO changed you as a person?

Internet users are worse than I thought in expressing the Dark Tetrad traits. Also, atheists are extremely crude on the internet.

I've learned that, unfortunately, we don't win anymore. We need a President who will win.

I've learned that I disagree with most feminism. (obviously a joke)
I've learned a lot about economics. (hmm, wonder who?)
I've learned that people are very crude on the internet.
My positions have remained relatively the same, at least the important ones. Some inconsequential positions (EU, UN, etc.) might have shifted slightly, but overall, I haven't changed much.
I'm more opinionated and outspoken, but that's not exclusively due to DDO.

I've learned you are the best MC, from A to Z, ain't no controversy, my girl rosalie!

I've actually had all my beliefs when I joined completely flipped, thanks to several very intelligent members.

I was a conservative, and was also religious at the time. I am now opposite on almost every issue except gun rights and death penalty maybe a select other few issues. I went from being a moral objectivist, to a subjectivist, to nihilist lol. I went from a Christian to an agnostic to an atheist. Yeah a lot has changed because of DDO. You?

You're seriously spending way too much time in the religion forum if you think that's how all atheists behave. Not to mention, most religious people are extremely crude as well.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Lol, exactly the same. Before joining, I was extrreamly conservative, and I was actually a homophobic, and hated people who were pro-choice. I hated liberals in general. And yeah, my family is extreampy religious as I once was. But now I identify as a liberal and agnostic.

On a more serious note, I've learned it's often the case that the case the most arrogant, douchey people are the ones you can trust the most, it's the ones who come off as nice you need to watch out for.

DDO is like Tv Tropes, you waste hours when you enter it because you keep on going to other forums and debate.
Someone will think your opinion is the worst thing ever.
It will take a long time to reach one thousand posts at the speed I am going.
Juggle has forsaken us.
Forfeits are annoying.
Everyone is a better debater than you.

Internet users are worse than I thought in expressing the Dark Tetrad traits. Also, atheists are extremely crude on the internet.

You're seriously spending way too much time in the religion forum if you think that's how all atheists behave. Not to mention, most religious people are extremely crude as well.

I actually never go to the religion forum.

There's no other explanation for your classification of the vast majority of atheists on DDO as hating religion and being "extremely crude".
