I hope it won't become YOUR problem, for if this does get worse, it will make it very hard to respond to any log/post on the forum, which would be a pitty

I guess I'm puzzled... how can a post not being posted be the user?  If the system is indicating it's posting but doesn't then there's something amiss somewhere.  It does seem random and rather limited, otherwise more would be pinging about this.  


Disclaimer:  I've not seen this issue of posts not posting even though the system indicates they are from my end.

Jim,  I think you have missed the point of Carl's post.  Yes, what you say about CNTRL-A etc does in fact do a cut/copy/paste of text. But that is not the problem. 


Consider this.  I click on the "Reply to Post" button, it opens a window into which I type some text (e.g. THIS text). When I am finished typing and proof-reading my post, I then click on the "SUBMIT REPLY" button.  Sometimes the text appears as a NEW POST in the forum (as I hope this one does) and SOMETIMES it just disappears into the ether of cyber space.  This is NOT a problem with our/my computer; it is a problem with the host server/software of the people hosting this web site.  I am not using CUT/COPY/PASTE; I am using a simple text entry from the keyboard of my laptop directly into the reply window.


I have had this problem happen to me a number of time; I'm just not that vocal about it.
