You're overthinking it, Professor. It's merely parlor conversation.I say, "Unconscious whim," and you think... what?
So, let I get this straight. Let's review. Your use of "might" indicates that you don't know why you're posting in the thread called "Why do you post comments/threads?" that you, yourself, created. This would not tend to bolster my original assertion?
Actually, I reckon the word might is hardly an indication of reasons behind such posting. To be fair, that is a side issue, those things are like achievements on an Xbox game, nice to do but mostly irrelevant. Nonetheless that would be a reason for posting, a motivation. Along with the other stuff I said. Which may be paltry and ridiculous and pointless, but I guess it's so.
I mean, there are some posts that have to be thought through somewhat. i.e. I gave someone a recipe once in food and drink, I had to consult a close to hand recipe book, but I had to inject my own thoughts on the matter, I couldn't have done that unconsciously.
Whatever, it doesn't really matter does it :S Sorry for wasting everyone's time...
P.S. You seem to have analysed my posts, hardly reckon that was unconscious
