is it retroactive

then I can bump up to 4000 replies but easily

(I have this unfortunate habit of saying to myself 'does the world NEED this post' which is very hard on post count)

Below are the three great thought-predators that consume 90% of my unposted replies:

1. "I probably don't actually know what I'm talking about"
2. "I'm too lazy to defend this point if someone challenges it"
3. "even I think this reply is boring, and I wrote it"

Of course, some still manage to slip through the cracks. Thought-predators gotta sleep sometime!

I've already written six posts today but my "last post" was from yesterday. I only submit maybe 20% of what I write.

Does this thread also count if you delete what you initially wrote up in favor of posting something else much less inflammatory?

You'd better double-post in here just to be safe.

Thornghost is a portmanteau of the words 'thorng' and 'host'.

Usually when I fail it post it is because I feel the post I typed is stupid, feel that it is too off-topic (like the above post (guess which thread it was going to go in!)), or because I feel too lazy to flesh it out.

Rumor has it that the mods can already see all the posts you previewed but didn't post.
