"If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all"

Really applies to me today! I can't tell you how many times I've backed out of a question today because I have nothing nice to say about it. The latest one was a post where someone had posted pictures of themselves. I could've gone with the flow and posted something positive, but I didn't trust myself not to say what I was really thinking, so I just hit the back button. So, do you ever put that saying into practice, or do you just let it all out regardless?

  • Na, I agree -- there are enough mean and negative people out there. Besides, would it really make you feel any better to just say whatever yout think as oppose to nothing at all?

  • I know what you mean.. I hold back a lot and still get accused of being rude :) Playing with words is not my specialty...

    Some questions I just say "nope, not gonna touch that one" and back out too !!!

  • I've done that. Sometimes though I don't do it fast enough and I type an answer, hit the Post Your Answer button before I can finish repeating that phrase in my head.
