    I'm just curious.

    I find a lot of times i see a thread with some tripe going back and forth and I want to say something...i'll even sometimes write up a post. But then i dont post or say anything.


    Usually I think about it for a second and realize what's the point. People are saying dumb stuff and fighting over it and i'm just not going to be able to bring them out of that.

    So i move on.

    Do you do this?

    I do it all the time. It happens when I'll read part of a post or skim it, then write a scathing reply and then check the original post that pissed me off and go, oh shit, that person is actually agreeing with me, then hurry off to delete my post.

    I do both of those as well :lol:

    usually they are the angry posts i delete. :D

    I find that 75% of the time i'll read an angry post of mine the next day and think "what a jackass I was" Maybe I should use that delete function ;).

    Yup.
    Matter of fact I had a two paragraph post I just wrote on the subject.

    But I deleted it.
