I had nothing but pleasant interactions with 'Fishy'

'Granger' on the other hand...

I don't really recall Granger ever being kind when expressing their opinions and rarely did they take into account the views of those they were opposing. You're right, it's like they wait just to spew more of their own beliefs onto others. Such a lame and old way of communicating. Some people end up becoming more and more defensive and irrational when they attempt to protect their old beliefs rather than adapting them when exposed to new information. It's Cognitive Dissonance at its finest.

At the same time, don't discount the fact that YOUR own beliefs and views have changed and those you once saw eye to eye with no longer "resonate" with your evolved point of view.

Either way, you seem to be very aware of those around here and their opinions and can feel the difference when communicating with those of like mind and those who are not. Keep exposing yourself to new ideas and points of view and ALWAYS seize the opportunity to challenge your own beliefs.

Knowledge is Power. Never Stop Learning.
