I don't think!
Ham Wrangler
I saw someone say recently that they often start posts but don't send them.

I do this from time to time, maybe once I typed it out it seemed like it didn't fit the vibe of the thread, or it was something i thought might be funny but changed my mind/ it didn't seem funny anymore since I started writing it. Or i just couldn't figure out a good way to phrase what i was trying to convey.

I know in more recent years people have been saying :justpost: but back in the day I did this a lot more frequently. Nowadays it's pretty much just like... will this get me banned? No? Might as well say it. I know a lot of people probably wish I didn't do this. I don't mind being unpopular as I would rather express myself and be myself instead of always just saying what I think everyone wants me to say. I also don't mind if people get a dunk on me because that's basically what this site is meant for anyway and I just don't take myself very seriously in general.

I think people should probably post more, draft less. It's fine to change your mind on posting something but it shouldn't be the default.

A lot of my posts don't make it. I'm just my own worst critic. It's probably for the best.

:same:, OP, though perhaps for me it's more due to time limitations.

The posts that get me probed tend to be posted immediately after writing them, I'm generally so busy laughing at my own jokes in them (hey, someone has to!) that I don't even think of self censoring.

Fortunately, when I stumble across one of my weeks old drafts, by that time I've usually forgotten what prompted it, so I don't need to grieve much for what might have been.

Anyways :agreed: :justpost:


Edit: I did once 'erase' one of my filthier posts, and got called a wimp for it. Probably a fair :cop: guv.

I don't know that I've ever typed up a post and didn't send it. I'm sure it's happened a couple times, maybe, but not enough for me to remember. So. Yep.

Uncountable times I'll write out a post, review it, and just decide it's better to not post at all and delete it. Which from my low quality white noise content you can be assured it was a really really loving bad post.

SA is the only form of interaction with people I have as I am aggressively anti-social and I self-isolate. I don't even use any social media or discord or anything. It is literally all. So when I wanna post, I post.

There was a period a while back where I had several new threads drafted up and ready to post when I chickened out and said nah. Itís because my previous threads werenít so popular, and one of them got a whopping two posts not including my OP.

But now I donít give a poo poo and :justpost:

Well my gassed threads discourage me from more hilarious posting. They were not badly rated just some mods with problems decided to gas them. This must be what it is like to live with deep dark secrets.
