responding and deleting

How many times have you responded to a post, re-read what you wrote and deleted before submitting because you knew it was going to be a really controversial answer? Or how many times have you started to respond or just changed your mind because you thought the post was just so,.... silly.... AND how many times have you wanted to say something really smart-alecy like "you are a freak!" and then thought better of it????

Just curious.....

Like EVERY day!!!!!!!!

I am constantly editing myself. I either want to be a huge smart a$$ or I worry that my humor won't be taken as humor......


LOL... Ok I am even editing what I was going to write about editing! :roll:

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I just did it in another thread
What really ticks me off is when I type out a long response and hit enter and my computer goes goofy and looses it. Then I get more po'ed and give up. I use too many smiley faces too, wish we had more of them. Like a barfing/stinky face or a heart for giving hugs.
