Does that ever happen to you? It does to me, from time to time. And no matter how careful I am, eventually I'll say something I wish I could take back. And usually I realize it too late, well after my comments have been made.

Then I think, Oh, man, I can't believe I said THAT in a post!

It bothers me to no end sometimes, and I start to think of the many ways I could've phrased my thoughts differently to get the same point across. By then, though, it's too late to amend the post and the comments are left to stand, regardless the repercussions.

Like I asked earlier, does that ever happen to you? If so, how best do you deal with comments here you wish you'd never made?
