Time to Look at Yourself

How would we see ourselves if we were to get to know ourselves through our own blogs? I made this generic, so people who use blogging services other than LJ can weigh in on this too.

Poll #1133388 Blog Interpretation

If you were to formulate an opinion of yourself based on the contents of your own blog, how would you describe yourself?

Yes, pretty much all the time.

Do you like the idea of going back and deleting/revising entries?

Never. Once an entry is written, it's in the record.
2(18.2%)
Maybe on rare occasions I'll make a revision/deletion if I was way off the mark, but not without a very, very good reason.
6(54.5%)
I don't have an opinion one way or the other, you do what you have to do.

0(0.0%)

Ethics

are a part of who you are, so they will always get reflected in your blog.

are a part of who you are, but blogging isn't the real world, so you may fudge a little now and then.

mean little to you.

ultimately tend to do people more harm than good.

Yes, basically.
3(33.3%)
No, I rather doubt it.
2(22.2%)
No, it's pretty clear to me that it isn't.

I wouldn't touch that crap with a ten-foot poll.
