what happened to my rant

In the middle of a rather long winded rant I was composing all of a sudden the screen switches to new post and I lost everything. The old system had a back-up or saved area to fallback on.

A way to avoid that is to use a text editor, then copy it to the reply box.

True. I've learned this lesson on several occasions.
Actually I guess I haven't really learned anything!

You probably accidentally hit a button on the keyboard that sent you away (I've done that on occasion). Unfortunately, auto-restore isn't working for now (temporarily). Long story short, some things won't be fixed for a few more weeks.
In the meantime, yeah, if you're going to write a long message, use an editor first, then copy. There's no way to get it back at this point.

Norm, if misery loves company - it's happened to me several times since the upgrade

Must have reached your new thread limit in the Ranting Forum

I too have been zapped after a lengthy post.
