Ever had this happen?
I was scrolling through a recently revived thread from a few months ago. I thought one of the posts was very pithy, but didn’t WW it. Then, a while later there’s a notification that I received a WW. I click on it and it’s the same post I thought was pithy. I have no memory of making the post, but it’s 100% me.
Have you ever come across one of your old posts and didn’t realize you’re the one who made it??
Am I getting dementia or should I lay off the bourbon??

Yes, I've had that happen before, and realized we could WW our own posts. I only did it the one time, by accident (I blame it on the wine), but I read that other people routinely do it. I don't really get the point. But I don't waste time trying to argue with people here, either.

I've had that experience, r1. Usually with older threads.

I have re-read threads before that I thought that if the thread was current here is what I would post. I then scroll thru the posts and find one that says almost word for word what I would have posted. The posts are months or even three or four years old. It dawns on me that I was that poster three or four years ago.

The WW is coming from inside your computer. You in danger gurl.

Probably. Why bother if you're getting dementia?

I saw that post too OP but I didn't think it was that great so I didn't WW it.

I've come across some really bitchy, vicious posts and realized they were me, lol.

R8 🤣It’s good to learn about ourselves.

In a sense every time you ww someone you’re ww’ing yourself, since the post is so sympathetic or congenial to your nature. But the exact thing you mentioned,typing a post then forgetting you wrote it and ww’ing it, that’s bourbon, at least in my case. And I wish I had a case right now.

Wait until I start arguing with myself.

If you start FFing your old posts, then worry...
... and don't EVER block yourself, it's very difficult to come back from that. Ask me how I know ;-)

Yeah, I’ve had this happen when someone brings an older thread back to life. I’ll be reading and suddenly think, wait...did *I* write this????

I have always wondered about people who block themselves, was it just a case of clicking on the wrong icon, or did you read some post, think "what an asshole" and block them and it turns out the asshole was you?

@r14, In my case it was an accident, I've never actually blocked anyone, but it took some maneuvering through my history to unblock myself

For future reference, it should be quite easy to unblock if you never block anyone, just click on the green blocked icon above and it will list the blocks you have done, and if you don't block anyone then you should be the only one listed.

There's almost never a good reason to forego bourbon.
