While watching the news I started a very charged and emtionally draining post in the politics and activism section just under an hour ago. It takes me forever to type my thoughts down and this only compounds my frustration of what I did. After finishing what I wanted to type I clicked "preview" to preview what I had typed. while trying to replace a word I essentially replaced or deleted the message with that word. My question to you is, since I clicked on "preview" is that message anywhere in your system and can you post it for me? Or have I simply gotten rid of valuable words that my countrymen should have heard? BTW, I tried to duplicate it but could not get the same affect.

Also for long posts you may want to use NotePad , Word or whatever word processor you use and just cut and paste.

The intrawebs stole it. Fuggin Gore and the bong water brigade are responsible. Time for a lynching.

Sorry bud, its gone :(

+1 on using a word processor such as Notepad to do your typing. If you ever overwrite text with other text you can use the Undo command to undo.

I've had that happen a number of times to me. Sometimes I get lucky and can right click and there will be an 'undo' option that will give me back my words. Most often there isn't though and rather than try to redo my words of inspired rhetoric, I simply sigh heavily and go on to the next topic.

If I am typing a long response, before I hit submit, I copy it to the clipboard.

Tried to look for an Undo function, but to no avail. I did a Copy but did not put it on Word or Notepad. When I did a new Copy I guess I was expecting it to be like MS's Clipboard where you can choose from your last fews Copies. I will try to recollect my thoughts. Hopefully it will have the same conviction.

BTW, curious as to how the PM function would have helped? :ponder:

If you make a copy by selecting the text, right-clicking, and copy, or Ctrl-C, or Edit copy, you can just paste the text using Ctrl-V or right-clicking or under the edit menu.

My turn - how do I set it to log in automatically each time? I put in the username & password, and click the little box "Log me on automatically each visit" every time. But never works any more. It worked for a while but not for the past few weeks. Its not a big deal, just wondering if I accidentally changed a setting somewhere...?

Oh and +1 on the write it up in a word processor then copy-paste. I did that a lot when I was working on translating things.
