Subject: RE: IMPORTANT--about lost posts-to save them
Probably not worth mentioning................. and I would never suggest that this might happen to anyone but a complete idiot.......but since I qualify in that group, may I offer this?

If you use the Preview function, you just might, upon occasion, every now and then, and only if you're an idiot, click on the Preview and Submit, then read your post. Maybe you make the odd correction, maybe you don't, but you finally sit back, satisfied with the sheer beauty and poetry of your work AND knowing it is thought for the ages which shall provide a light, a shining beacon of truth for the world. Yes, at this point you sigh in satisfaction and then, for reasons unknown, you decide to click off Mudcat for awhile and come back later to bask in the glory that you know will be showered upon you.

Problem is that when you return, your post is missing. That's because you read the thing in Preview and clicked off without ever posting it to the forum. Now if you had saved it..............But again, I wouldn't begin to suggest anyone else out there is that friggin' stupid but for an assshole like myself, I know this has happened.

On the other hand, if you think you ARE an asshole..............
