17. I hear you, I have to censor myself too.

I have written a number of angry posts only to delete them before posting. I think it is one of the reasons I get such a kick out of people who claim I am "in a hissy" or "coming unglued" when I respond to them. On DU2, there was a possibility, but here, the juries are too capricious and many are too bigoted, so why give them ammunition.
