Haha I like this one...

Even if you have nothing in common with other listeners you'll find something to talk about.

It thought me that 99% of people who use the word pretentious are just kinda stupid and threatened by other people being more intelligent/knowledgeable than they are so they feel the need to justify their own inferiority/mediocrity by labeling others who can actually articulate their opinion with a negative term.

Um, what else....yeah, it taught me patience. I think there's a tremendous amount of difference between me from 5 and a half years ago and the me you read now.

Talking with other intelligent people also thought me to be much more articulate and try harder if I want my opinion to be heard/taken seriously.

Musically I don't really think much has changed.

In the short time I've been here I've learned to not care what other people think of my music taste, because in the end there'll always be elitists who think my taste is inferior, when really I just listen to what I like whereas they listen to what makes them sound better.

I think it depends. I really don't like the concept of "superior" music tastes, and a lot of people here seem to believe that they have them. That's a little pretentious to me.

Many of the people on here that could be considered "pretentious" are absolutely fantastic at thoughtfully articulating why they don't like a band or an album WITHOUT coming off as an enormous asshole. That's fine.

However, there's always a few douchebags out there that seem to crawl out of the woodwork to pick fights any time someone expresses an opinion they disagree with.

(Oh, and to clear things up, I was kind of, you know, joking in my previous post. :/)

MusicBanter has taught me the following:

* I like some Dubstep songs. A lot!
* What Dubstep is.
* I don't like a lot of music but just a few songs here and there.

* I really do like the whole process of making music more than listening to it.
* I love discussing songs and lyrics with the people who made them.
* Most musicians seem much more interested in their own musical process than in other people's (meaning mine).

* I am much more social than I thought I was.
* Some strangers are pretty darn nice and I like them more than I thought I would.
* I am easily amused by people and feel inspired by them. Many people are really very funny, and I love joking around with them.

* Some people like to argue even more than I do. !!
* I like trading insults more than I thought I would. Sometimes I kind of like to fight and goad people a bit.
* People who disagree greatly on some topic can actually learn to like each other or at least have some respectful interactions.

* British people aren't any more polite than other groups of people. They sound so genteel on TV!
* The world is smaller than I thought it was, and people are more similar than I realized before.
* Being vegan doesn't mean *always* being a social outcast.
