    Only ever saw one mind in the bilge changed, but it was worth the wait; that of SV Airlie. Mostly this is just a place to blow off steam.

    I think that I caused a guy to change his mind once, about the ANC being a terrorist organization. That was fifteen or seventeen years ago, I believe. Probably my finest contribution here.
