I did this twice now . I am actually kind of embarrassed to say I have done this , yet my spell check is right next to my refresh and for the love of all that merry, I have no idea why I hit the back button . I was half a page thick on a post and lost it . I almost just logged out after that , yet my fingers would not let me. Have any of you guys lost long posts on this and have not been able to get them back?

it happened to me but with submit button. the response or discussion would be posted unfinished so I had to either post additional comment or if it was a discussion I had to wait until someone responded and I would add the rest of the discussion as a comment I don't think you can get it back, if you hit submit then it's posted if you hit anything else it will be gone that's what usually happens

Even after almost three years here I am still losing posts. I sit with my keyboard on my knees and sometimes it slips and I don't know what I am doing. I am hitting buttons everywhere. Sometimes, I lose myLot and not just my post. It is very irritating when I have posted a long response and then it just vanishes. I try to remember now to copy my post before submitting it as when I lose it, I sometimes just don't bother to type it all out again.

oh that does sound really frustrating .. yeah maybe Mylot would be a little bit nicer with a safe save or something? thank you so much for your response :D
