It's a sad day when people are so afraid of getting downvotes that they censure themselves.

It's kind of like that already though. It takes a certain amount of CCP to achieve full functionality. Not that I'm really against it, but it might hinder a bit of expression...

On the other side of the coin, I used to be more of a lurker on the site that shall remain nameless. This forced me to come out of my shell a bit and start commenting more. Besides we really needed it during the fattening to prevent brigades from the other site.

People do that in real life all the time though, it's the same as thinking before you speak.. Which is an important practice.

There's a difference between being timid and having no filter.

I think it will allow more discussion though, think about it, goat A wants to post a comment but is afraid of the downvoats, but because he has the option of removing his comment, he might post it in the first place to begin with

I think most people do, and have to. Especially on this site where when a net amount of votes hits -50 your account gets deactivated (from what I'm hearing).

I think, and I agree with your thinking as this is unfortunate, that we don't get as many real opinions here as we should because those people are afraid to speak their minds due to written backlash. I've been guilty many of times.
