At least a few times a day this happens to me. I open a thread that peaks my interest, read the OP and any replies and decide I have something to add to the discussion. So I type out a reply(sometimes long), read back over it and decide I don't like something in my wording, or I want to add or take out something. Then I end up changing my mind and cancel the reply all together. Does anyone else do this often?

It's pretty casual here, don't build it up in your head too much. Just make shorter posts until you get the hang of it. No need to write the Unabomber Manifesto for each thread. I usually try to check mine to make sure it won't be taken the wrong way, then I just post away.

I say whats on my mind, get flamed, and apologize. It works better for me than editing myself.

once a year or so.

Unless your thoughts are consistently racist or sexist, I say let fly.

Even my nonsensical references to One eyed Ogre male rapists find purchase somewhere and get several hundred replies.


Here let me spout some idiocy to show you that it is all GOOD.

What in the crap is the white yeasty stuff in my fermenter?????

I syphoned my wort off of it....and it made more!!!!!!!


What is DME?? Dimethylenergy??????

Anyone else suffer from inability to get an erection? Me neither!!

Oblivious, the fact that you are more articulate in a second language than many around me are their own speaks well of you, and ill of some of my countrymen.

One of my problems is I'll read my reply to a brewing question and think "that sounds dumb" or "I'm sure someone else will reply and word theirs better than this."
