Okay, so maybe I'm just neurotic and grumpy, but I have to get this off my chest.

If you start to post in a thread you didn't mean to, or you hit quote instead of reply, or any number of things, until you've hit "submit" you can still back out! Just hit the "back" button or close the window/tab.

Magic! No more "oops. Wrong thread," no more "didn't mean to quote myself...nothing new to see here."

This is meant to be more of a PSA, because I gather a lot of people aren't aware of this fact, and less of a "j-dub's a crasshole," but I apologize if it ends up being more of the latter.

Pure love.

I thought people just did that to maintain high post counts? (this would not be an example of such a thing).

j-dub, you are totally not a crasshole. I have definitely (on the old boards) quoted myself when I meant to edit and have been oblivious enough not to realize it until after I hit submit.

I've posted in the wrong thread before, because I open a bunch of tabs at once and am often stupid.

is it really such a big deal? the odd time i've seen it happen, i am not bothered by it. it's more like "keep scrolling."

Is it? No. Does that stop me from being irritated? Of course not.

I'll refer you to my opening statement:

i assume that most people don't realize what they've done until they hit submit. i guess it's harder to tell on these boards because if you edit your post before someone opens the thread it is in it won't say you've edited it. people aren't really figuring out they've made a mistake beforehand and hitting submit anyway, right??

Yeah, I think if you're seeing this it's because the people have hit submit, but realized right away and went back to edit it so you can't see the edit.

So NOW j-dub's a crasshole

No! I used to see it on the old boards all the time, too. No editing took place, people just hit submit to announce they'd blundered into the wrong thread or hit the wrong button.

NOW j-dub's really a crasshole.

This just means we all really like sharing what is going on in our lives.

Yeah I have done this once or twice. It's only after I have hit submit I realize what I have done.

If that happens, you can report your post to a mod to have it removed.

I don't understand why anyone would hit submit if they realized they were in the wrong thread. It never occurred to me that those posts aren't edited.

I always think I am on the ppk too much but now I feel like I am not on it enough because I have never noticed it.

* Or maybe I just glaze over posts like that

j-dub, I have also wondered why people don't just back out of posting. I do it all the time - start to type a reply or hit quote, and then realize I don't want to post in the thread after all, or maybe I need to get my thoughts together first.
