    favorite thing about ODN?

    Hi I'm new to ODN. My interests include health care concerns, issues related to women, politics, science, the environment, culture, and ice fishing. What's your favorite thing about this site?

    I think that syl just about summed things up for me as well - welcome Athena, I hope you enjoy the banter, enlightenment; yes, and the BS!

    Re: favorite thing about ODN?

    Gotta say I like the admin. I've been to other boards, and the reason that ODN is better than them is becase of Apok's site rules and policies, and his encouragement for all members to "step it up" when it comes to making sound arguments.

    Other than that, my two favorite members have left. There's ongoing disputes between members and mods. Atheist/theist and Liberal/Conservative tensions seem to be increasing. Very few of the registered members are actually active.

    Regardless of quantity, however, ODN is pretty good on quality.

    Re: favorite thing about ODN?

    My favorite thing(s) about ODN are:
    • The extremely interesting and personally meaningful relationships that can be cultivated strictly by text
    • Those powerful moments of clarity when you've discovered through penetrating and incisive discussion that a long-held belief of your own is most likely wrong and acknowledging it through a hearty concession
    • Those other moments when you can somewhat feel like you’ve helped someone else by showing them, again by penetrating and incisive discussion, that their reasoning may just need a second going-over
    Those moments where you walk away from a discussion knowing more or thinking differently about something are absolutely priceless. Anyone can go to an everyday sounding board and spout off what they believe to be true, but it takes a certain level of intellectual honesty and maturity to guide someone to new knowledge or to accept that they’re wrong. I like to think this is the sort of thing that ODN foments.

    was any of Dio's post in English? I didn't understand a word. (goes off to look in mirror, sees blonde hair.....returns)..nevermind.


    My favorite thing here is the people. Most are highly intelligent, caring people who I have grown to appreciate. A few, I even ALMOST love. haha.

    I hope you enjoy your time here, Athena....beautiful name BTW. Goddess of wisdom.....how fittingly perfect!!!
