Is your opinion truly valued?

I've responded to a lot of discussions on mylot. I try to be open minded, but I wonder how open minded other myloters can truly be. Do you think all members want your honest opinion when you reply to their topic or do you think some, or a great number, just want you to agree with them?

I am open-minded about a lot of things. I am will ing to see some things from another's point of view and can even try to find some common ground. No matter how open-minded I am I still have my own opinions and I express them. Very rarely have my opinions directly confliced with a poster, but sometimes it cannot be helped. I would hope that my opinions are received in the spirit for which they are intended. Mostly just putting in my two cents with the understanding that you do not have to agree with me.

I don't see how you can determine what some one wants from just a discussion here. Even I don't know what I expect. I give a best response many times to those who don't agree with me. I guess I like to get people to think.

It has happened to me.I answered a discussion on American politics,I thought he was asking about the waste of life in deploying troops and although those soldiers are brave and are willing to do anything for their liberty the people at the top use them like porns for their own ends and to keep themselves in power,I am a mother so I don't like anybodies kids getting killed.Well he wrote back really cross and said they don't mind dying for their country,so I upset him.Then another one who told me to go and fight and die and Bush was wonderful,so for that reason I don't go near Politics and war anymore,If they said I don't think you understand my dear and explain it to me.they get so rude,I am only little and don't mean anyone anyharm at all and respect all views.I don't think many people get upset if you don't agree with them.The trick is to give all views and why some people feel that way,but yes I have been in trouble and I expect it will happen again.The vast majority respect your opinion they may say they don't agree with you but thats fine not everybody feels the same way about things and we must remember to respect all views.thank you for reading this long one.
