Have you ever suddenly, randomly, thought something related to DDO (e.g. "this user's posts are awesome" or "wow, she handled that in a classy way in the thread") and haven't posted it? How many times have you thought something while browsing a thread and not actually posted it? Have you ever had a response to a thread that was last posted in a year ago, but didn't post it for fear of social stigma for necro-posting? Have no fear--this is the right place for you!

This is an open space to just post whatever came to your head -- as long as it is not a direct personal insult or TOS-violating or whatever (note: this is NOT a truth box). Just let out all those those thoughts and posts in this thread--if you're responding to another thread or a post in another thread, but not posting in that thread for some reason [e.g. to not necropost], just link that thread here and post it. Just post what comes to your head, and feel better about yourself.

I used to be such an idiot on this site... every time I read some of my posts from a year ago or even anything above 7 months ago, I cringe in embarrassment. I think I came to my senses around 3 months ago.

I get the strange feeling that Romanii is paying attention to this site while his account is deactivated. If so, hi :)

Excellently said by Double_R:

"I think it is because this is how pathological liars work. They do not think about the long term consequences of what they say. They think entirely with their emotions, which is why they make great salespeople. Since they rely so heavily on their emotions they are good at reading others and feeding them whatever they want or need to hear, but on the flip side when confronted with an allegation they instantly go into defense mode and are quick to make up a lie before getting a chance to think about whether that is a good idea. Then once the lie is spouted it has to be upheld, so any scrutiny will be matched by vehement insistence and repetition."

Compare your posts from a year ago to my posts from a year ago. The level of the idiocy of my former self is incomprehensible.

I'm pretty sure they couldn't be that bad. Maybe in comparison to yourself now but generally speaking I'm sure they're not as bad as you think they are.

Most of the things I think about posting but don't are TOS-violating and direct personal insults.

Long ago, I told someone that "Everyone from the UK is Liberal. Even the Conservatives." To start... The conservative party there is very liberal by US standards. Secondly, it was a joke. He was to dumb to realize that.

Romanii, YYW and perhaps FT or F-16 are the only people who understand how dumb I was...

Yeah, I'm talking in comparison to now. Not that I'm awesome now, but I was an embarrassment to my current self.

That's not really a strange feeling, and I repeat that statement, substituting Romanii with JMK :P

When I look or read any posts of JMK, the first thing in my mind is, When will he deactivate? When will he come back?

Compare your posts from a year ago to my posts from a year ago. The level of the idiocy of my former self is incomprehensible.

Try going back and looking at my posts from 4-5 years ago. It's making me cringe.
