Yeeeep. Usually, the reason is that responding to the person is pointless, because they're idiots.

No offence to most people on the site, but there are quite a few......

"People of lesser intelligence" on this site, as with almost all.
Lemme just fix that up for you.

I do. Usually I have to thinka bout it, look at it, decide what kinda crap I may or may not for it, and finally if i want it to be said.

usually I just type it and delete it, just so its out of my mind.

Oh yeah, I used to do this all the time. Hell, sometimes I still do it. It's usually because I think either "People have already said this. No need to repeat, this won't contribute much to the thread" or "Wait, I no nothing of this topic. Why am I here?"

I must say, though, looking at the poll, it feels good to know I'm not the only one who does this.

Just saying... Don't make statements like that and then leave mistakes in your post. Really doesn't look good, mate.

I was going to just say "Yes" then I said "I don't think that'd contribute to the conversation much." And then I said "Wait, I just did exactly what this thread was talking about. I can just type this!"

Whether or not I decide to post something usually depends on if I think it's mild enough to avoid undue attention.

Yes. Many times I'll lose my train of thought or realize that what I was saying was wrong. Or I'll just realize that I'm not contributing anything.

Ironically, the Escapist didn't seem to want to let me post here at first.

Aye, I only post about 1/3 of what I intend to write.
Often I leave the thread before posting because my post seems confusing or I realise that I don't really want to share my statement with others.

I'd say about a third or more of the responses I start typing out here I end up backing out of. It's not necessarily always because I don't think that it doesn't add to the conversation, but that I know I didn't put it the right way and don't wish to backtrack and restructure my entire statement.

I wonder how many people ironically did that exact same thing in this post though.

I sometimes want to post something about how pointless it is to post something on that thread, write it, smack myself in the face, and go do something else.

Not my problem if you don't want to improve your spelling.

I'm actually really hesitant with most of my posts, I have a good memory and thus remember past bad comments I've made like they were yesterday so I'm really careful, a lot of times I start writing a response and then backspace it.

After I realised that I just spent ten minutes trying to word my response so that some idiot won't flame me for it I give up and close the tab. If I chose to finish reading and posting in all the threads I was planning to do so in, I'd have double the post count. I'd also be banned.

I don't usually get to the stage of actually typing it out, but I do often conceive answers and then decide against writing them.
