Ever just feel like it isn't worth it to post?

Especially when a topic is one you know a lot about and/or have a lot of experience with. Sometimes I feel this way and just let folks spout whatever they want. Of course some of the advice given is dangerous then I feel kinda damned if you do damned if you don't, as you'll likely be ignored and talked down by the know it alls. But if you don't say anything they might get hurt or worse.

I dunno. No real point. Just feels like everyone who has read something is an expert on the internet sometimes.

    I have a LOT of experience in posting in threads that I have no business being in.. so No.. I do not know how you feel...

    P.S. I find that one of the best reasons I'm on THIS forum is for that same reason, most people are levelheaded and listen to all opinions

    I totally agree. This and one other forum I frequent are full of levelheaded, like-minded individuals who have a basic respect for civil discourse. Some of the other forums I've been on are a little too trash-talky for me. I'm all for a good ribbin', but it get's old after a while.

    In my experience, most of the people on this forum will offer honest OPINIONS or at least post a link to back up their statements. The internet is full of tough guys, know-it-alls and wannabees. But they're few and far between on this site.

    Just my humble opinion......;-)

    I know how you feel. :) I am relatively political but I rarely post in the politics discussions here. It's just not normally worth it, and certain discussions can hurt friendships in a small community like this.

    Yeah, I'm the same way for the most part. I 've had bad experiences with political and religious discussions on other forums. This is one of the few forums I go to anymore, because it's such a great place to come to and just joke and have a good chat. I try my best not to sully it up with getting into touchy subjects.

    Hell, I'm sure I've offered wrong advice before. But, then again, everything I know about cigars I've learned from you guys. So, what I'm trying to say is that I AM NEVER WRONG!

    No seriously. I might offer misinformation sometimes. I pretty new to this and I've learned a lot over the last year, but I'm no afficianado. But I don't think that most of us are afficianados nor do we know an afficianado which is why we come on here seeking advice. If I'm wrong about something, please correct me, that way I don't follow my own bad advice.

    I used to not post, then I went for 5 pages with laker one time and that was kinda fun. i usually don't reply though because whether I am familiar with the topic or not, I am always right so there is no need to discuss anything. I'm the only one that lives in my head.

    Was that playing the night you were there too!?

    I thought that was something Dennis pulled out special just for me. Hmm.

    I was a little put off by the gigantic size of the Donkey's genitalia, but hey, it's his head, and his thoughts so I never asked.

    Sometimes I get ready to post, then decide against it. I never claim to be a know-it-all in any discussions (except with my gf face to face), but sometimes want to give my opinion on something someone is inquiring about. Most of the time I prefer to read others' posts rather than type responses.

    how did this go from me always being right to a donkey show. there ya go laker, always throwing in your propaganda........... of course kidding. you gotta admit though, that got sidetracked faster than a kid with A.D.D. at a circus, oooh donkey's let's go check that out.
    so about my neighborhood. I guess I live in Tijuana now, well, at least the dog tacos are fresh. off to the donkey show we go.

    And this is exactly why I think it's worth it to post, look what happens to the most innocent posts...

    We can discuss anything, and we always seem to end up at a donkey show, its like a bachelor party every day. A whole mess of booze, cigars and brother & sisters of like minds... where did you think this was going to go? church? I love this place!!

    Donkey show..I missed that..was the donkey smoking a cigar... I think the posts are really interesting, especially the ones from the new guys...I can see myself in a lot of their early threads. Some of the threads are occasionally humorous in that you know this person is making a dreaded mistake but if you try to correct it oftentimes it gets mis-interpreted as coming from a know it all. So a lot of time I will just sit back, read and wait for the results. But there are a lot of posts that are quite informative but like anything on the internet you have to be able to discern what is real and what is just junk. Read-compare and go with what works best for you...don't get in over your head.

    Are you suggesting that PURO made the whole donkey thing up !!?!?!

    While I agree that not everything you read on the internet is to be trusted... that does NOT count for C.COM forums. Man, if you read it here... you can take that to the bank. LMAO

    Now, where's my cattle prod?

    Well, I hate to be the bearer of sad news but...Word is that Lassy broke into the stables and took off with the donkey!!

    Not sure what his intentions are, but I know that Duty's donkey was never the same after Lassy spent that one weekend with it. Poor thing just curled up into the corner of its stall and wouldn't stop trembling.

    Pray for DennisKings' poor donkey, boy's.

    Damn right! Anything here is the gospel! Even Laker's comment on the size of that donkey's junk! It was HUGE! I've seen midget porn stars shorter than this thing!
  • VulchorVulchor FloridaPosts: 4,844 ✭✭✭
    I would just like to bring light to the fact that this may be the first time (or one of the few) midget porn has been brought to the table in our great forum. Puro, I salute you for this as every LITTLE comment helps our fellow citizens who happen to be midget porn stars. (:::thinks to self, [email protected] that was a bad attempt at humor:::)
