This is very upsetting. I am upset.

Just to be clear, q 3 was making a joke.

Man, though, if this were actually true then I would use it to preview so much unactionable passive aggressive shit-posting. It's like when you notice someone eavesdropping and start intentionally talking shit about them.

Sometimes I post something then immediately edit it, but I know the mods can still see what I did.

Yeah, as a compulsive post editor (most of my posts get edited 2-3 times in rapid succession after I first make them), I sometimes think about that. I doubt they care enough to go looking, though? Except Falselogic, but screw that guy.

it is a little comforting and a little sad that we're all doing this.

Post edits made in the minutes after you first publish the post aren't captured by vbulletin. Only ones made after 5 minutes or so are logged as edits.

This changes the game.

I only ever edit posts in that case for glaring typos, but I have to make a judgment call if it’s worth getting that “last edited” message appended to the post. Normally I decide not.

Same! Sometimes I just can't handle it, though. I've been known to edit posts years after the fact for a typo, especially when I'm reading back through my old Let's Play posts. Every time that I decide not to, it is at great personal cost.

I wrote three posts today but didn't submit any of them because after I read them back I thought, no one gives a crap about what I have to say.

I thought the same thing about this one but whatever.

I find the majority of your posts enjoyable, sometimes informative. Everyone on here have valuable things to say.

Except for that one guy. You all know who I'm talking about.

River, I have over 30k posts and not a single person on this forum cares about what I think.

And yet they exist. Please post whenever and whatever you feel like posting.

I always enjoys Rivers postings!

And this is sincere; not a post I wouldn't write or submit

Fun fact: I've cancelled replies more times than I've actually posted.

Ironically, I almost didn't post something earlier and I was writing up a post in this thread about not posting it, but then I decided to make the post I was gonna make and so I decided not to post in this thread.

No but they monitor and log everything you type into the update field, even if you don't post it.

Let's say you start typing a status update but decide it's crap and delete it. Facebook logs what you typed before you deleted it.

Getting an early start! This un-submitted post was deciding to opt out of an argument-in-the-making, though, so it's probably for the best.

I deleted two replies today, but I did submit four (including this one). I'm making progress!

I do this but I do it less often now because in the last couple years as my posts have entirely ceased to be funny, insightful, interesting or relevant I more often don't get to the point of even attempting to write something that I later delete

I've got my tally of unposted replies today. It looks like I had 7. Most of them were bad jokes, one was an attempt to clarify something relating to sexual harassment news that was poorly articulated and genuinely ill-conceived (that is my post was those things), and finally I had a post about Thor 3 ready to go that clearly added nothing to the conversation.

I unposted the same thing twice.

But that's all I can remember.

Can’t find the insomnia thread; don’t feel like putting this in discontent or anxiety:

Brain decided that the cusp of sleep last night was the time to suffuse my conscious mind with energy and anxiety thinking about hypothetical elderly people who died decades ago. Reflecting on their youthful dreams and regrets, then dying, now forgotten. Why??
