I was just in the process of responding to a thread with quite a lengthy answer which took me quite a while and involved some research. I was about to publish when one of these damn things popped up under the mouse and responded to my click. On paging back to my response everything I had typed in had gone. This is absolutely infuriating. It's bad enough having to dodge the things all the time, and I know they are necessary, but come on PCA, this is the last straw. I now have to do it all again, this time in a foul temper. Why did all my text have to disappear?
Don't have a problem with the Blackberry type adverts on the main page that you just click out of. But yes, these 'within text' ones can be annoying. Sometimes if i want to copy and paste a comment it's almost immposible as the text is littered with them. Perhaps we should all ponder what we type first. I bet the word Blackberry produces one. Ooops.. i did it again.(O:!
to post when in "a foul temper". I certainly feel more like replying to an email than I do to bad-tempered threads about something that has been discussed at great length recently.
I'm sorry you are infuriated, but there's not much I can say, apart from suggesting that you do what many people do, and type up lengthy posts in a word processor before pasting into the forum. That way you won't lose anything, whatever happens.
