    I spend ages writing a new thread, submit it, only to find I've been auto-logged out and have lost it all. It was about the current healthcare debate in the US as I see it on this (UK) side of the Atlantic. But I've lost heart now- can't be bothered anymore.
    Stupid system.

    Sometimes if you hit the back button it comes back.

    LoL :) New to the internet? Notice my join date? I've been online since before anyone had heard of html (1992). I'll take your thinly veiled insult with humour.

    As for the 'back' trick, tried it, didn't work.

    I haven't shown my face on any forums for a year or two, and i forgot the cardinal rule of ctrl-A, ctrl-C, before submitting.

    Noticed this isn't the section for US healthcare debates anyway:)

    That sucks. But you taught me a new helpful keyboard shortcut (control A). So thank you.

    Sometimes it's best to use a word processor or editor for a post that is a bit longer than usual or requires a bit of work to put together. When it's finished you just cut and paste.
