Self Censorship

I hate it when you write long LJ posts about things. Read them back to yourself. Think you sound like a wanker and then delete the whole thing.

There's always the "Private" option ;)
I get a lot of use out of that, wanker that I am!

The only time I've ever used the Private function is when I've been midway through making a post - or formulating a post - and had to go and do something else. I've saved it as a Private and gone back to it later to finish it - or delete it :p

Yeah, but the world has been spared much of my drivel for this very reason so there are some good bits.

Yup, the stuff I post is the good stuff.

I do that almost every day, but still a lot of nonsense gets through :D

Can't say I've ever noticed that myself. ;)

Some of my posts can come out that way, especially when its a topic where I know that few people will ever agree with me. But then, I don't want to put a sugar coating to my posts, I'd rather be who I am.

I take the opposite approach, I only delete the posts where I don't sound like a wanker. Means that when people meet me in real life, they actually think I'm not so bad afterall.

I don't usually no. If I'm writing something down, my brain is clearly insisting on making sure that a bit of subconcious gets heard and paid attention to at times. I humour my brain and post it (sometimes as a private or heavily filtered post). :)

Hey, at least you read them before you post them. From what I've seen, that puts you ahead of 90% of the LJ community.
