Have you found yourself scaring the members of your family with a deep primal scream because you just lost ALL of your meaningful prose you wrote in a forum as a response?
FWIW -I’ve been the victim of a system crash either on a forum, FB, my own blog, or elsewhere only to see my meaningful prose go down in flames and I wanted to tear my hair out. I scared my cats while I was at it, too.
Here’s the tip: Craft your words in a text file on your desktop, not online. When you’re finished, just cut and paste, send, and voila! No more drama. No more tears.
Tip 2: You can spell check your prose, too. With your personal dictionary, this allows you to breeze through your content that includes your own ‘learned’ words.

PS. Also, I just found myself copying the entire text block before I hit send (just in case I didn’t follow my own tip) to automatically save it to your clipboard for the ‘just in case’ moment. Again, drama controlled. ;D
PPS. Crap, now I have to copy this block again! Oy!
PPPS. That’s CTRL A, then CTRL C
