I think Witti hit most of the reasons I would give. Some posters are not confident in either the subject matter or in their ability to tell their own story clearly. I know of at least one person who doesn't type quickly so posting is a chore but she said she learns so much by reading. And often I don't think posters know what to say, or how much to say. There are several threads going right now that I'd love to jump into and debate some of the assertions made - but would that be uncivil? And if that isn't the intent of the poster - to really wonder about this or that - then it might feel like an attack or something. So it is complicated.

For me, I often write because I need to write. I love the responses but writing has its own intrinsic reward. Most of the time, my journal is just fine. But sometimes I guess I want someone to bear witness, or to challenge me or to help me with my questions. I like feeling connected here.

And lately, I'm much more of a come and go person. Life is busy, complicated, overwhelming and painful. I reach for words and they don't come. So I'm left with the plaitudes and cliches.

Is those better than nothing? I'm not sure...
