I’ve just tried to post one of my typically verbose screeds to the forum. I had checked the Notify me box. Foolishly I didn’t back it up before submitting.
The website ate my content and displayed a red message box above the empty form: “Error: Are you sure you wanted to do that?”
Given that there’s only one clearly marked button at the foot of the form, I’m confident that I submitted correctly.
I can’t muster the energy to re-draft the post, so the world will be deprived of my deathless pearls of wisdom…
A pretty irritating bug – please investigate.
