    Does it make us all deceptive?

    We don't have a backspace in real life no edit or delete options.. No control.. once we say something it's said.
    We have a lot of control on here as to how we project ourselves that we lack IRL.


    Just stuff that keeps me awake at night..

    lol Glad I'm not alone. A lot of times I feel like I have something to say, but I don't have the words to articulate it perfectly. Then I just end up scrubbing the whole thing

    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors

    Yeah sometimes I start writing something and then think 'Hey... this is a really stupid thing to say...'.

    Spoken like a an Xe dom? Xi dom's do this very frequently in conversations. That is, we can think a great deal about what we're going to say before we say it.

    The reasons I do this are because the post I'm about to make is:
    • Superfluous
    • Not funny
    • Stupid
    • An easily googled question
    • Too vulgar
    • Unnecessarily Hostile

    Or I've walked away from the computer and too much time has past for the post to be relevant or I've lost interest in the thread.

    I don't know if that was my point.. I think not only about what I am going to say next but also of the possible responses and my possible responses to those responses. I am 3 steps ahead most times before I ever open my mouth.

    I think my question or point was one more of ethics or perhaps that we are less ourselves on here than we might think.

    OK - now I know what you mean. Wouldn't it take a lot of energy to put up a false persona though? It sounds stressful.

    ^That made me laugh, it definitely sounds familiar.

    Do you do this? If so why?

    Type related?


    For me, the most common reasons why I do this:

    *By the time I've formulated a good response, someone has beat me to it and has said basically the same thing I would have said only better. I don't want another "me too" post.

    *Worried that I haven't phrased what I wanted to say well enough and it might cause others to misinterpret what I've said.

    *Decide that what I'm about to post is somehow too offensive.

    *Decide that what I was about to say isn't going to add much and people aren't going to be interested anyway.

    *I change my mind midstream and by the time I've formulated my response, I've stopped caring.

    *I realized that formulating a well thought out response is just going to take too long and I don't want to spend the time.
    Everything you listed applies to me, but that one really stands out the most. Sometimes I'll post it anyway, but then other times I think about it and it's not worth it.

    I don't censor myself so I am dependent on the replies to discover whether I am -
    • Superfluous
    • Not funny
    • Stupid
    • An easily googled question
    • Too vulgar
    • Unnecessarily Hostile

    This is an activity that carries some risk. However the advantage is that I can write what I think as I think it, and the disadvantage is I must bear the criticism of others.

    So I can either bear my own criticism or bear the criticism of others. And as I am harder on myself than anyone else, I decide quite sensibly to bear and even invite your criticism.

    This has the double advantage of not censoring myself and being free to write as I feel and think, and secondly, I become part of a conversation.

    And as I no longer need a peer group to conform to, it leaves the conversation quite free.
