My biggest problem is accidentally clicking something and browsing away from the reply I was in the process of typing in.
Sometimes I do research on the side while I'm actually typing in a reply to find links and relevant/sited information to include with my post.
With 3 or 4 instances of internet explorer open it can get pretty hectic and it's much easier to accidentally browse away from your reply when you
didn't mean to. I always click back when that happens (as if it would somehow save what I just spent half an hour typing in and linking to). Of
coarse, it returns but you lose what you typed in.
I recommend the Microsoft word method or even Notepad works but I typically only do that for when I'm starting a new thread that needs more
explaining than normal.
I often start typing in a reply and end up spending ALOT more time on it than anticipated because often I have new ideas while typing in the reply.
Sometimes we also remember relevant links we've seen recently or other material that we want to include.
I've done the Microsoft word thing and it does work but, honestly, opening word and doing copy/paste jobs to and fro while in the middle of typing in
a reply just seems like alot of extra work (I am lazy!)
