Sometimes you write up a good question or MyTake but you KNOW it will attract idiots and trolls. You don't feel like dealing with people getting butthurt. There are always people who will pick it to shit rather than just agreeing to disagree.
Yes, very often, I hold out on myTakes because I don't want to deal with people saying rude things to me. It took me courage to allow opinions on my last myTake. I don't mind disagreements but I would rather someone tell me why they disagree with me without sounding rude and inconsiderate.
I don't ask questions because I don't have anything important to ask. I can survive without asking questions on here.
I used to hold out on writing takes that I knew would result in the shit hitting the fan at mach speeds. Not anymore, though. Nowadays, I write more for myself- to organize my thoughts, in a sense. I'm always down to discuss an issue if someone has beef with my stance on it. Surely there are always those 1-2 users who turn to name-calling or throwing insults my way but I usually take that lack of a proper defense on their part as a win for me. :P
