Sometimes that annoyingly occurs just after bothering to compose a post. The timer on this forum appears to be ridiculously short at this time. Twice I logged on this morning and after a modest period crafting a post, when submitting the post, the logged off message instead appeared.
The annoying thing is there is at that point no way to recover what one had written unless one editing elsewhere say in Notepad and then transferred the text in at the end. I in fact tend to do that much of the time just for that reason.
Please increase that TIME OUT period to something reasonable for us that bother to write more than inane one-liners.
