Curious as to how long people on average spend pondering a post and writing it before clicking the big "Post Reply" button. Would be interesting to see how long people take to come up with their written material, whether it's more of a whim/reactive approach or if it's calculated and drafted/rewritten (such as I think many CE posters would do). Also interested to know if anyone researches, uses thesaurus' or if there is any difference in between forums (e.g.: you take 10 minutes to post in CE, but 2 minutes in SW&D). Personally I find myself spending anywhere from 3-15 minutes on a post (average being around 3-5 minutes but my longer ones can take 15 minutes) and often reword, rewrite and repeat the post to myself before deciding to post. Oh and this post took me 6 minutes . EDIT: I accidently forgot the poll when making this thread and then made another thread where I forgot to check the "public results" checkbox, so apologies for the other two threads I posted, has not been my day ><.
