Well, I think ... no, nevermind  
I have just started four (4) substantial comments in response to various people's lj posts, only to realize halfway through that whatever I was saying was either never going to come out right, or wasn't kind or useful, or was so inane as to insult the OP's intelligence by my including them.

If I have commented on a recent post of YOURS with similarly unhelpful content in the last little while, I apologize for not catching myself sooner.

Instead of writing a bunch of stupid comments, for the rest of the day, I am going to replace my input with adorable kittens:
I'm feeling: blankinarticulate

Sometimes things just sound so much better in our heads...

Uh huh. Been there. A lot - only I wasn't smart enough to not comment myself so apologies were issued. I am learning - I've just started flat out discarding comments when I find myself getting off topic or away from the original intent :)

Um....yay! Kittens!

I do that all the time (start writing and then realize it's not useful).

I think knowing when one can't contribute to a conversation is an under-rated and highly valuable skill.

Also: squee for adorable kittens.

I hate days like that. Especially when the not-useful stuff I'm writing is articles I have to post anyway for work because of deadlines.

Good choices, well executed.

I think the world would be a better place if this substitution happened more often. Maybe some other animals for variety.

I wish I could recognize this more often
I do it - start posts or comments and then read them over and think "nope, that's not helping" and hit the Back button.

Then again, sometimes I get it wrong and hit the Post button instead.

Kitteh is good!
