    Default How often do you abort your threads/posts on forums like these?

    How often do you begin to respond to a topic or start a new one on a message forum such as this, only to change your mind and never finish/post it?

    For me, it's extremely rare. If I bother starting it, then I almost always post it.

    I...know, however, that many people start topics/responses, but for one reason or another, abandon them before finishing.

    I'd like to know how often it happens to you and the reasons it does.

    I sometimes start writing an angry reply, but calm down before hitting "submit". Thus the war doesn't take place.

    Often.
    Reasons:
    Writer's block, "What was I gonna say?"
    Sometimes my reply is full of gibberish/rambling/too much storytelling so I just "never mind" and delete it.

    All the times

    Often I couldn't express my ideas fully because of language proficiency.

    Very often. I'm usually distracted by something else and forget what I wanted to say.
