    Am I the only one?

    I find myself constantly typing a reply to posts then not clicking the 'reply' button. Four times so far this evening I have done this. Some of the reasons for my wasted time:

    1)My answer would not be taken as well as was intended

    B) After re-reading, my answer was really lame

    Next) My answer seemed brilliant but what do I know?

    5) My answer was definately brilliant but I forgot what it was while I was typing it. All attempts fail to recall the amazing concept so I slap the side of my head and hit the 'go back' button.

    Delta) Seems witty at the time but I pass out before hitting the 'reply' button and wake up to note how the post made me sound like a pervert that uses pantyhose for sock puppets.

    Am I alone here?

    I do this all the time. Usually I think I have something really clever to say, but on paper it just doesn't work.

    i do it all the time. Usually I'll change my mind and decide that posting it wasn't really worth it...ie, the extra post would have been better spent elsewhere... :shocked:

    Sometimes I type out a reply, then decide 'that might get me in trouble' so I don't post.

    I save those posts for the WoW realm forums, unmoderated.

    I just punch it in and send it! I see absolutely no problems in my posts!

    Then I spend the next 90 minutes making "minor" reparations the post's tone and language.

    You're the lucky one.

    Yes, I will be fixing this post too for the next 90 minutes. It's sad.

    Sometimes I take so long to reply that I usually find that someone else has already said what I wanted to, so I stop.

    Everyone who posted before me is senile. Stop filling the pepper shaker with lead flakes and spiking the punch bowl with mercury.

    Obviously, this never happens to me.

    I think I've thought better of maybe three posts in my entire time here. And two of those were after I'd posted them (and I don't believe in the edit-post destructo option, if some people have seen it everyone might as well).

    Yes, your reticent nature is obviously to blame for your pitifully low post count.
