    Anytime when I do my research about that topic, when I'm trying to write a blog post I'm always questioning myself whether if that information is wrong to the point where I get crippled.

    This also applies to interacting with people on social media or answering on comments on blog posts.

    Is it just me? Should I be ashamed for using such a self-aggrandizing nickname like "man", or even worse, "gman" when I'm a pussy?

    {I appreciate your comment.| Your comment is wonderful.|Just wow.}

    { I learned many stuff|things| from you.}

    What's with the caracters. Is this the new trend?

    Dude, it's exactly the opposite. I always feel I don't know enough to apply my knowledge esp. when I see other people in that niche.

    If I was under Dunning-Kruger effect, I'd never write this post cuz I'd think I'm a smart which ain't the case.

    Back when the forum was still on vBulletin (before you joined), there was a filter that prevented members from creating posts shorter than 15 characters. So whenever a member wanted to type a short answer (e.g., yes, no, maybe,etc), they would type "15 characters" in order to add enough characters to their post to "get around the filter".

    Nah, it was a great filter, reduced a lot of pointless comments.

    I have this problem as well, I feel like it never goes away. The moment before I publish I think all kind of bullshit will come my way.

    Damn, saw many of those "only quotes" replies. I use to think they wrote in black so I better hold and select the empty space but never found anything.
    Now I know where to look.
    Thanks.
