I do that quite often, actually, but there is another reason that I delete the comment: I feel like it would add nothing to the conversation... I might have already given my full side of the arguement...

I mostly write comments and then don't submit them because they're too short. It's better for me to just not write them than for me to add on spam just to get it up.
More to the point, I often don't realize how stupid comments are until I see them on the screen, so I either rephrase them or leave the whole situation alone.

Yes, I've written a lot of comments which I haven't posted, some of which I've even spent a few hours on... and then deleted...

Sometimes it's probably for the better when I delete them, other times I'm not so sure...

I've often deleted them because, I've spent too much time rewriting the same message over and over in different ways, and it still doesn't feel right.

Eventually I usually come to terms with the fact that I could spend the rest of my life trying to make my message just right and that it never would seem right to me. I realize that whatever I'm trying to say usually isn't really that important, that hardly anyone will likely see what I write, and that my repetitive attempts to make myself understood eventually backfire and make whatever I'm trying to say lost in a jumbled bunch of words...

I've actually rewritten this message about fifteen times in different ways and, it still looks horrible to me. This is just one of those times where I've put to much into it and wanted to comment on the topic enough that I just have to do it, regardless...

Sometimes my comments might be offending, Racist and maybe too Personal even though I never say those comments anymore in Real-Life, I might post them depending what the conversation is and How far it is, Unless they don't want me Commenting on the Conversation itself as I might hurt their feelings.

Personal Feelings and Ideals while putting them in Comments may hurt someone and maybe insult them and mostly I would just say to just don't post it all if you don't want to be mean or trying to make a "Point".
(I rarely say anything Racist nowadays..)

Deciding not to post something comes in two flavours: prospective calamity or ninja'd.

Prospective calamities happen when I have this gut feeling that if I post something I'm going to let loose an avalanche of fury from some unsuspecting soul.

Ninja'd is when I'm typing a post and as I post or after I have, someone's already said something similar to mine or even better.

How can you know if you have been "ninja'd" without posting it? The question he asked was if you delete it without actually making the post.

That's why I said during. There are some forums I've been on that automatically update posts or warn you when there are new posts created while I'm composing. That, and the preview button works wonders.

It normally happens when I misread a post. What outraged me was actually my viewpoint stated in a weird way. I then delete all six paragraphs and sum up my approval in a single sentence.

Usually, I will write something or other that seems good, and then suddenly realize that there isn't a really good reason to post it, and it should be left alone. I don't do it all the time, since I'm pretty good about figuring it out before I write, but sometimes that happens, yes.

I almost always do this, as my mind tends to wander and I will either think of something that would better fit the situation, or I'll forget why I was writing to begin with, and just start from scratch. When typing longer comments, or posts I will often pause to read through all I've written, so I make sure I'm coherent as I've been told I run off track once I get to writing.
