After working for 30 minutes on a new post, I'll reveal that I took you up on your offer to "try your new home page quick post form."
My stupid Dell touchpad scathed across a link and triggered automatically. When I went back to my work here in Firefox, it was all gone.
There was no autosave in effect as I was used to.
My fault, for not responding to the word "quick". And I see the Save Draft option underneath. Yeah, definitely my fault.
But I felt that this had to be reported. Don't let this happen to you.
