If asked under oath what political party I support, I would say: "None - I could care less about politics. Furthermore, my posting on sites like DP is not politically motivated.... Why do I do it? Cause I live with my parents and I don't have a life.... No friends, no job, no nothing. AND I'm mentally ill, which is why I have no friends and can't find a job or anything... So, I use the internet as an escape mechanism, of sorts...."

Mind you, what I just said is (for the sake of discussion), off the record.

Does anyone out there have anything to get off their chest, either on or off the record?

I don't understand.

On the one hand you're saying that yoou made the comment "under oath" which is about as on the record as you can get.

Then you turn around and say the comment is off the record.

What's your point?

I don't expect people to understand - that's my point.

Have gotten pretty used to being misunderstood these days...

How is what you just said "off the record" when anyone can see an quote your post? We could copy an save it on a word doc and re-quote you whenever we want. How is that "off the record"?

If what I post bothers you, I don't have a problem (you do)....

Sue for what?

Why the concern about what you say under oath, then? Why would you be in court in the first place?

I'm not concerned.

I wouldn't and won't.

thanks for your comments

Nothing to get off my chest here.
