Have you ever made a thread that you regretted later?

I certainly have. Here's one of them. This thread popped into my mind as "what was I thinking when I made that" after seeing it.

Anyone else regret a thread? And by the way, I change my vote to no, I doubt George Zimmerman would like My Little Pony.

Yeah, I've had a few; for most them, I think I deleted them after 1-2 responses.

Just one (that I can think of) and even then, not all that much. (it got deleted)

edit-that's just here....there are a bunch from earlier in my forum whoring that I regretted.

The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

I saw in my stats yesterday that I've created 51 threads in my 10 years on the forum. I only remember the content of a couple -- one was a stupid "I've hit 2,000 posts" thread.

I don't regret any, but I do remember that most of mine received tepid responses. That's always embarrassing ... creating a thread and having it die after only a handful of responses.

It's even worse when it gets pushed down by amazingly stupid crap, as is almost always the case.

I think a better question for me would be to name a thread I don't regret making.

Ah, indeed! Always frustrating to have the latest "Opinion of opebo" poll crush a legitimate attempt at discussion!

I don't regret any threads I've mad. I regret most of my IRC weekend chats, though.

...anyone who says our society must force people to expose themselves to those of the opposite sexual orientation, is not decent.

So you mean if we force the gay to be exposed to the straight, we are treating the gay indecently?  Because you didn't specify which direction the hate was supposed to go there, Black Beans.

In general I feel really awkward when I make a thread and nobody posts in it.

But other than that no.
