Does anyone else suffer "fly-away posts" when posting on Chowhound?

Caroline1 | Mar 15, 201504:41 PM

It's been going on for me for a veeeeery long time! I'll have a post almost complete, or maybe even complete and be editing it, when ZAP!!! All of a sudden the post disappears and I'm back to the board's title page with a list of all of the threads.

It's so frustrating to have a post disappear when you're only half way through. I've managed the problem for a long time by typing my answers in MS Word or some other word processor, then cutting and pasting back to my response in the thread. It's a pain in the mmm.mmm.mmm to have to do it that way, and far too often I forget, lose a long informative post, then just give up in total exasperation.

It happens no matter which of my computers I'm using (work station, notebook, tablet) and it stays with me. I'm not absolutely positive it happens with a "touch screen keyboard" because I'm a touch typist and even use a blue tooth keyboard with the tablet.

I went so far as to change ISPs (from Verizon to Time Warner, and what a fiasco that was, so I'm back with Verizon FiOS!)

So I'm asking.... Am I the only one on planet earth who has this problem? If other people have it too, have you found a way to lick it????? It has REALLY taken the joy out of participation for me.

That, and answering threads that are from five or six years ago, only to find I already responded way back then. THAT is a ticker-offer!!!!

If you share my problem, I'd feel comforted just knowing I'm not the only one... If you have any thoughts about why this is happening, I'd love to hear those too. Thanks!
