    In the last several months, certain experiences (including conscription) have changed how I view a lot of things. I'm interested to know whether anyone who has interacted with me here has noticed any changes in my posting style during the last few months compared to, say, a year or two ago.

    Feel free to use PMs if you'd rather not share your answer in this thread. Either is fine with me as long as I get some feedback. :D

    In general--basically in any noticeable way, whatever it may be.

    Earlier I wondered how you managed to avoid getting in trouble for some of your expressed opinions. I've not noticed such postings recently. Is this accurate?

    Some of my opinions have changed, and so have my ways of expressing myself.

    What kind of trouble are you talking about, though?

    As i remember when you got out of the army you seemed to be i quite a bad way mentally. You have become less (not sure how to word this) frantic and more settled.

    I don't know if frantic is the correct word, it's difficult to describe exactly.

    Given where you lived, I wondered about the government and the religious authorities.

    I often keep most of my views to myself offline and make sure I only share them when they come up with people I strongly trust.

    I don't know. I have genuine opinion, but all I can say is that I've not noticed too much of a change good or bad if going by general conversations-the context always plays a part language wise and/or expressive wise which can be interpreted beneficially or consequential.

    You drunk post more than you used to. As someone who has been known to drunk post from time to time, I find this amusing.

    I don't think I interact with individual people on here enough to detect that kind of thing. I almost see the internet forum experience as a kind of matrix of different personalities, distinct though they may be, trying to form some greater sense of a uniting meta-mind, like a stepping stone to AI? But if you think you are changing, perhaps do what I do, and look at your old posts - I find myself harder to read, the farther back I go : in fact I can barely understand myself, and remind myself that I must simplify my ideas
