Posting in Relationshippy right now when it's late at night and I've had some strong beer was never going to be a good idea, I don't know how I even thought I could manage to phrase that in a way that wouldn't just be a self-absorbed melodramatic cry for help, but thankfully after re-starting it about three times I just gave up.

I just did this. Decided what I was going to say didn't really contribute anything new. But which thread was it?

Couldn't think of a way to make a joke (?) without it sounding in poor taste.

I keep drafting up replies to a thread that I think is bad but I can't find any way to articulate my opinion that won't start an argument that I don't want to have. I think I've written and deleted 6 such replies over the past week or so.

Same boat, might even be the same thread. Amazes me how many posts can be made in a thread about something nobody likes or is playing.

Send your bad posts to me. Know that I will read every post with care and sincerity. Slowly nodding my head as I read it.

I am your bad post confessional.

Typed up a whole thing for the Book of Faces about what I think is behind a political thing that irritates me, but ended up just deleting it. What, in the end, would be the point?

Ugh, I want to vent about something that just happened, but it wouldn't accomplish anything except making people worried about me and/or sick of my whining.

I normally don't post much, and generally keep my feelings to myself, so this thread would be an appropriate place for me to post. I've been writing a reply to the "What happened to Atlus?" thread for the past, oh, twenty minutes or so, and I'm afraid of coming across as clueless or insensitive or like I'm looking for self-validation. I want to make useful contributions to the discussion, I want to understand, but emotions make me uncomfortable and I don't know what to do with them. I think I'm gonna sleep on it. Maybe post in the morning if I still feel strongly about it. (And this post itself took me a good five minutes to phrase.)

EDIT: A full night of sleep later, and I decided to delete my draft. It still puzzles me somewhat how far a ban or boycott can reach, but I feel like I've thought of enough reasons that I can understand well enough why someone wouldn't just avoid supporting problematic content directly, but also connected materials (e.g. other products from the same organization, or created in collaboration with another company). Simply because I personally have a higher tolerance and don't spread as many poisoned connections as others, doesn't necessarily mean that any of us are wrong. Right?
