How often do you delete your own post? I mean how often do you start to post something and when your all done delete the whole thing and not post at all. Sadly, I don't often enough. I would say I do that about 50% of the time. I'm a butthole by nature but I have a habit of over evaluating myself. Bad combination.

I delete something like ten percent; mostly when my statement is reall lame, and if I am too prejudice.

I do delete some of my posts especially when I read it and it seems negative or can be read as negative. I really enjoy a good discussion on topics in person but by doing it electronically (ie forum posts) it can be misread in many instances so I try to self police my posts.

I delete maybe 1 in 20. Like Jalopy, if I read it and it's too negative or a reaction to someone that is just trying to stir up trouble, usually I'll cool off and delete it. I think sometimes just writing it out is helpful in letting off a little steam.

Not as often as i should. I was recently given a warning from JAMA about disclosing some of the old tried and true medical practices. (Turpentine)

Apparantly not enough and have to rely on the automatic post deletion feature on CT. :oops:

Haha aww. Poor Jo.

In general I do it every now and again.

If mnm is involved normally it's 90% of the time :p

I never delete my own posts. I just sit back and wait for someone to "straighten me out".....which is more often than I like to admit. :lol2: :lol2:

How about when you write out a good, long, thoughtful response to something (which I don't often do unless directly asked a question because who cares what I think otherwise?) and then post it only to learn that while typing out the long thoughtful post that your computer has gone off line and your post has vanished?

I relate to both of these.

What I do is hit the back button on my mouse and that thing is gone and when you're a two finger typer like me, that's a major investment of time :help: .
