I did this a few times when I was new here. Why is it that it always happens at the end of a long and very well thought-out post? Then you get so aggravated that the re-written version is nowhere near as good as the first.

Thanks for the warning. My esc button is the first at the very top row and I hardly ever use that row of buttons but now I shall be exra careful as I have had responses disappear and I had no idea why.

I know you had to be very upset about losing your long post. I would too and it has happened to me before but not by using the ESC button. This is a very good warning to all people so that they do not go through the same situation. i will try to avoid the ESC button.

It such a stupid litle accident, and it cancels your typing immediately. I hope the MyLot administrators see's this topic, and mybe they could modify the web site so that Esc does not cancel your typing....?

Yep - I've done that! Now that you have reached the experience of 754 posts you can do what I do on long posts and type it in Notepad first and then cut and paste.
