all my best posts.

I never watched my mouth in my life, but here I am censoring myself on an internet board. I guess I just want to be loved.

But, Oh, it hurts to pass up so many ops!

You delete all of your best posts before we ever had a chance to see them? That explains a lot.

Nords,
My son was looking over my shoulder and asked if your avatar was a pizza!
Either he needs glasses or he's hinting at what's for dinner.
BTW- He's three and LOOOVES pizza.

OK sorry for the hijack. Back to deleting worthless posts or whatever you guys were talking about.

Clearly you're suffering from a deficiency of longboarders over there.

Lemme know if there's any suitable locations for me to come by and attempt to rectify the situation...

You go back and delete them after they've already been published or you type them out and decide not to post?

Here you go Nords. Surfing in Panama. Nothing over 5 ft I think. I talked with one of the guys as he was heading for the beach and he said he came all the way from Hawaii

The second. Periodically I succumb to flat out curmudgeonhood, and in this target rich environment it is sometimes hard to resist laying out a few bon mots. However, I made a pact with myself that I would try to be more considerate, so I use the internet and specifically this board as kind of a self improvement laboratory.

Hard as it may be to believe, I have made some small progress.

You'll rarely regret deleting the post before you submit it, but many times you regret ones you posted. It's too bad we don't also get a preview button before we open our mouths.

If you can believe it, I delete half of what I almost post. And I've gone back and deleted at least 500-600 old posts.

Very clever.* *Are you running for office or something?* *That's the same thing I would do if I wanted to look much smarter than all my old posts made me look.*

Re: I delete

In your case, I think it'd take more than 5 or 6 hundred.

Probably more work than its worth, we've already got your number.

Actually in my case it was mostly stuff with what I thought was too much personally identifying information, like my name, where I lived, when and where my kid was born, where I used to work.

Fortunately, even when i'm being intentionally circumspect, theres always some dickhead willing to help me out by providing the specific information in a reply.
