    OK --- This bugged the heck out of me also. Nothing more embarrassing than having a previous reply included in a Mod Message when you didn't intend it to be there. So I experimented a bit..

    You're right. Even if you delete and reload the page it comes back. Comes back if you delete and change pages and then come back to THAT PAGE... It's a feature to make it PURPOSELY HARD for you to lose a "draft post".

    But there is this little button I never paid attention to in the Tool Bar for post edits. It's to the right of the "Insert" (quoteboxes, strike-thrus, etc) and is a blue "letter" icon. It allows you to "Delete Draft". When you DO THAT -- it appears that it removes the "memory" of what you stored in "reply quotes". So then if you delete it -- it SEEMS to stay gone. Try it. Lemme know if it works.

    Oh c'mon Aye -- It was a lucky guess. A gorilla would have figured out eventually...

    I have found that once you click on "reply" then you MUST post it.

    You can turn around and "delete" it right way too, if you want however.

    • I am on Verizon Samsung tablet. No mouse. Android. I am in reply mode now. Almost all the buttons top of reply window do not work? I will try to find it on Windows PC someday. I think I know what Joe says. I think I been diong Hoss method when mouse. Tablet is better for reading than replying......I touch any button now.......it acts like right-click in text box. Very small edit area.........not worth it.
