Don’t know if this problem is my and my computer or the forum……..
posted a long-winded reply and submitted it. The submit didn’t seem to take so I submitted again and the forum said it was a duplicate and refused to do anything. In the end, nothing was posted.
I tried again and the forum seemed to accept and post replies only to later swallow them up and make them invisible. In self-defense, I ended up posting in smaller chunks to avoid a total loss.
First time it’s happened here and so far never on any other forums.
I tried to identify the problem but couldn’t find anything. While I’m not sure, the problem may relate not so much to length of your post as including multiple links in the same post, which makes the built-in security get suspicious.
Last week I attempted to post a new topic in Taxation of Investments. The system responded with an error message but without any detail. Even though the post failed, my username showed as the last person to post in that section.
After seeing this thread, I thought it might be worth removing the second of two links in the post. That post succeeded without any problem.
