I like your point - it conjures to mind the idea of quite, peaceful meditation and coming up with a post that is useful, polite and a delight to read.

Unfortunately I can rarely stop myself from shooting off my mouth. Back in my formative years I can remember my father telling me that "It's easier to apologise than ask for permission". I suspect I have applied this a bit too broadly in my life, since he was only referring to his job as a project manager (where anything goes so long as you 'win' at the end).

That probably doesn't seem to relevent, except that people who recall some of my worse posts will see that my attitude of "just do it and worry about what people think later" has made me look like a buffoon.

I shall try to keep your advice in the forefront of my mind when posting.

It's just that it's so easy to react without thinking...

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
