Did you ever type an opinion but chose to not post it?

Have you ever gone through a similar experience?
You see a take, you read it, you type a thought out response/opinion, then when it comes to clicking the submit button you just stop?
It doesn't have to be just here on GaG by the way; Any similar experience would do.
If yes, share some details, such as the subject at hand, what you wrote, and what stopped you at the last second from sharing/sending.

  • There have been several times that I've done that. Sometimes it's just because I don't have the energy to invest in what feels like a "long conversation." Other times its because I don't think my opinion will be received well, I have some really off the wall thoughts!

  • I do it all the time. For various reasons. Most of the time I write it out fully but then realise there's either no point to it, it's not helpful, or something exactly like it has already been said.

  • I have and then put myself as an anon because my best friend happens to be on this site so I didn't want her to judge me or to change the way she thought of me :)

  • Yes, I have. It was more because I didn't know how to word something properly, so I just moved on.

  • A lot, too many G@G users are immature and I don't feel like arguing with them because it will inevitable lead to an argument.

  • Sometimes, yeah. I'll start typing and then realize it we'll either take to long to explain myself or it will lead to further debate, and I just don't have the time or energy at the moment, haha.

  • Sometimes if I think it will turn into an argument, I say to myself "Is it worth it?" if not I will cancel opinion.
