What emotions lead to posting?

I recently posted some psychological good sense, and the question of why I posted it came up.

I have some usual reasons for posting: "That's cool! Other people will like it!" and "That's outrageous! The world must know!" and "Help!" and "Here's an interesting thing was thinking-- you might be interested, too". The good sense post (and the book it's from are decent stuff, but when I got to that particular chapter, I had a strong feeling that there were people (not individually specified and not necessarily on my flist) who needed to see it, and therefore it was a good idea to post it.

What motivates you to post?
