Writing a post on Chowhound...and then deleting it before posting.

John E. | May 23, 2014 07:31 PM

I have been posting on Chowhound for a little over four years, which makes me a 'newbie' to some CH's I know.

Every once in a while, I find myself responding to a thread, or a particular post on a thread, and then I don't actually post it.

Does anyone else find themselves doing this?

The posts that I write and then not post, are not usually posts that I reconsider because I have second thoughts about them being flagged. They are usually posts that I have second thoughts about because I think I might be revealing information that is too personal (and I've revealed a lot of personal information in an anonymous way on CH.) i have also deleted posts before posting because I realize what I have written is too far off-topic, and I go off-topic too much as it is. Finally, I delete posts before posting becaue sometimes after writing them I think to myself, does anybody really care about what I have just written? My posts can be silly and or irreverent at times I know.

As a matter of fact, I almost deleted this post just now.....
