Have you ever made a post on BF's that you regretted later?

Come on! Fess up. I know I did. Of course there is the delete feature. But if you don't come to your senses soon enough someone will select "Reply w/quote" then you are locked in.

Yes and No...there have been times I might have been too harsh, in my non mod days I could definately e-slam someone into next week. I rarely post without some thought, so I rarely regret my posts.

No. This will be my first one.

I've made a few posts and/or threads that I was a bit brash with. But those have been rare and often lost to the depths of BF's before anyone really noticed.

Probably a couple here I've regretted, but far more on my blog, or in email. The stuff I put here doesn't really matter. There's one thread that I regret, because you can't delete your own thread. Having merton make fun of me for a post is saying something... I had a really bad day at work. I'll just leave it at that.

For the record, I don't regret any of my posts because I can't remember them anyway.

Okay as evidant by the fact that I'm posting again in this thread, I instantly regret my previous post.

The "Girl in the Wind" gif is me waxing poetic. If Siu had a similar avatar it is merely coincidental.

After having thought things over, it would have been more interesting to start a forum with:

"Make a post on BF'S that you will regret later."

I posted a thread in FOO today that has gotten all of 10 views and no replies. I guess no one wants to give me feedback on my newly modified cycling log webpage. Now I regret posting it because I feel unloved by my BF family. I'm going to have a shot of rum or four and then go back to working on my studies for class tomorrow.

I was gonna reply cuda, but I was awestruck by the quality of your work. You rendered me speechless, and that is something that doesn't happen all that often. If everyone kept a cycling log like yours, the world would be a better place. Peace in our time would be at hand. It would never rain on weekends. Nobody would ever go to bed hungry. And every little kid would have a puppy and/or pony.

There, you feel better, don't you?
