You posted it because you were really stressed, just got over a bad break-up, say, and when you go back and read it, you realize how ridiculous you sounded?

**** tried to add more in the “details” of my question, but after posting, it didn’t show up for me, so, I’m adding it here..

No, all my questions are intelligent, well thought out questions. “How do I get the mold smell out of my basement?” haha.

Just my stupid twitter queston.

Nope, and this is a direct result of not posting a lot of questions. I know I’m a hothead when I get riled up, and many times I’ve wanted to post something but I don’t and always appreciate my hesitation an hour or two down the road.

If anything, anyone in such a situation may learn the value of a day of calming down and putting things into perspective before taking action. That is a very valuable lesson to learn, and considering the “low social cost” of learning it through this forum, that’s actually a pretty good deal.

No, only a bunch of spontaneously thrown in comments.

I find it helpful to write once, read twice, edit, wait a few minutes and then decide to send or not. Like now; I will not write this in Finnish. That is only a late-night activity.

No, I usually ask questions about a personal matter I need an outside perspective on. Now comments, yeah I regret a few.

Luckily, the moderators have caught my really lame questions.

Yea, there are indeed questions I wish I had searched for first.
But usually, when a question comes to mind, I get so excited about fluther that I don’t think to search til after I’ve posted the question. Oops!

Nope. It’s the Internet.

@gailcalled. . .Esattamente! Tutti sanno che l’italiano è richiesto quando il sole è alto.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Nope. It’s all me, y’all, good, bad, indifferent or embarrassing.

@gailcalled . . .Molto vero. Ho sempre ritenuto di essere spagnolo caldo, bruna cugino.

I just examined all the questions I’ve ever asked on Fluther and I couldn’t find any that I truly regret asking. I found a few questionable questions but nothing too over the top.

@chyna That ain’t French!

I write, post and scram. If you can’t foam at the mouth here, where can you? I figure if I get some heat, or if people poke some fun at me for a question or a comment, it’s all right. I can stand it. My reputation is so far down in the cesspool that nothing I can do will rescucitate it, anyway.
