I can't even begin to count the number of posts I've lost here! After writing a post, then posting, I get some error...and POOF! GONE.

It's frustrating beyond imagination!! Just gone.

I've re-written a couple, but most times I just say "screw it"

I don't know why this site won't let you recover a post (most do). You can't back up. If you don't copy the text off to a word pad or somewhere, on EVERY SINGLE post...you can lose a post here in a second. And, there's no way to recover them!!

GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

(just wrote a long response to a post (kind of funny) and got an error...LOST.) DAMMIT!!

that was my issue tonight too, but I've had other similar issues in the past. Granted, some of them are mine, and I can deal with those, but that "page not found" is a death nail for a post unless you've got a copy of the text!!

hmmm, hit ctrl-a, then ctrl-c before submitting. page not found, go back to make post, ctrl-v

If it happens so many times that you have had it before, it'd make sense. idk. once bitten, twice shy..

Get into the habit of 'ctrl+a' then 'ctrl+c' before you click 'post' or 'reply'.

I do this every time but it just took me ages to work out what the actual keys are I'm pressing. The autonomous mind is an interesting thing.

I don't share your hate but, I do share the frustration. Although I don't post often I have had this happen as well.
I've gotten in the habit, if it's going to be a lengthy (IMO) post, of highlighting the text, right clicking and copy.
In my experience if the post is 'lost' I can simply respond again and paste. There it is.
I'm not sure about the ctrl a, c, v and the like but, the above is simple for me. I like it to be simple.

Shortcut keys are the future, the mouse is the past.

Live in the now.

I've had it happen occasionally. Really ticks me off when it does.

If I post here, will I get infected...?

Not so far. When that used to happen to me, I would make a point to remember to capture the content before hitting reply.

Okay, maybe "hate" was a bit strong, but I was frustrated. It was in the moment.

So yeah, maybe 'frustrated' is a better word.
