I don't think we even need to go that far.  If you  need to think about 
whether a post belongs on here, open Notepad and type it out as a simple 
text message and save it to desktop.  Let it sit overnight, and review it 
the next day.  If it still  looks OK, copy and paste it into your post and 
send. Otherwise, revise or trash it.

That works for me.  Sometimes in the passion of the moment, a  response or 
post seems perfectly OK, but in retrospect it may appear entirely 
inappropriate.  Not only might you catch something before you send it only 
to regret it later, it's amazing how often embarrassing grammatical and 
syntax errors that you didn't notice first time will stick out like a sore 
thumb when you review a composition a  little while after you first wrote
