That happens.  What I've discovered is that if I'm going to piss someone off, it's going to happen pretty quickly - but I'm generally ignored these days, so I kind of crave the attention that my inflammatory posts *might* generate, so I don't dare delete any of them, for fear of becoming the human equivalent of wallpaper.   {#Angel}
Actually, I'm often surprised that some of my "kinder, gentler" posts are noted and commented on long after the initial shunning.  I just can't predict you people.  You all should be more like trivia questions.

And another thing about deleting posts: Sometimes, I say something I totally agree with (!) and am 100% willing to discuss at any time with anyone... but later realize that others disagree and an argument will surely follow (or be extended). Sometimes (just sometimes) I will delete that post just because it's not worth it to me or the community. Grant me the grace to recognize that situation more often. Like now, probably.

I often realize—usually after the cows have left the barn—that I've said something unnecessarily hurtful. If that's the case I apologize and move on. If what I've said hasn't blown up (yet) I'll edit it out. Never as an attempt to deny having said it, but to avoid causing pain or upset.

While you're editing, I occasionally edit for clarity as well. I don't post much anymore either... for a handful of reasons.

But I rarely delete because you cannot unsay something online any more than you can unsay it in person. You say it. It's out there.
If it's deleted, it's still in the wayback machine. Freaking internet.
