Posting when drunk?

do you do it?

of course there's no breathalyzer on the login page but if you choose to post on englishforum (which of course is a better decision than driving your car at that time), try to keep it on-topic

Re: Posting when drunk?

I have been known to post (not here) when under the alfluence of incohol...
The biggest risk is maybe posting before having the first coffee in work

Re: Posting when drunk?

It's not unheard of. Especially if the people I have been drinking with are the people who I am posting to. Great for adding that last witty comment that you didn't think of until you had left the pub. (So this ould happen tonight)


BTW. Can you shift this thread down to off topic, unless forum support has become an outreach programme for AA.

Re: Posting when drunk?

No, I won't move it as it is also a Forum Support/notice-type thread

"Posting whilst drunk is ok but keep it on-topic"

Re: Posting when drunk?

What happens if we start a topic that has no topic? Will the forum crash?

Contradiction in terms.

Did you mean to say what happens if we start a thread that has no topic?

Re: Posting when drunk?

I guess I should find an English class instead of a German class. I was born and raised in America and you see I still don't type the language well.

The mods will get irritated at the extra work you'll make for them having to cleanup / delete / move a useless thread....

Re: Posting when drunk?

This one is an example of such behaviour. Not too different from my usual low standard.
