Does this happen to anyone else… you type a reply to a message but instead of posting it you just say forget it and close the window. I do this at least once a day :suspicio: I wonder what my post count would be if I didn’t do that.

Usually when I do it I am on the way to making a point then think to myself"That doesnt make sense".

actually i've said technical stuff in my reply before, then not feeling 100% sure about it, i go do some research, find out I'm completely wrong, then abort the post completely.

I do it all the time. Especially when I'm upset at some previous post... I vent then capitulate to reason and drop the issue.

haha - my old boss used to type nasty e-mail replies just to get it out of his system, then delete it and start over with the real thing but professional... I always thought that was pretty funny - I just didn't want to be there when he accidentally fired off one of the nasty ones...

I do it at least once a day. Usually its because after reading what I was about to post, I realize that I am offering nothing positive to the discussion and feel like my post would be either pointless or offensive. Now if only I could self-edit in person!

At least once a day - some things are better left unsaid. If The Greek ever really wanted to make a lot of money, he would capture the "pre-send" text and e-mail it back to us and ask for $5.00 . . . or else it gets posted and not allowed to be edited! ;)

Yep...do it all the time, mostly here in "Off Topic." I'm giving up contributing to controversial threads.

after being here for 2 years, i get tired of saying the same thing over and over again.
so when i'm about to say the same thing i've said like 10 times before...i just say screw it!

that's probaly why i have such a low post count :oops:
