comments to Answers forum topic disappear Answered
Several times over the past few days, I have tried to reply to a particular question on the Answers forum, specifically the question linked here:
I write a comment in the little editor-box-thing. Then when I click the "Make comment" button, and the text of the comment I just wrote disappears. Voop! It's gone! Then my disappeared comment does not become posted to this topic.
Where did the text I just wrote go to? Did it go somewhere? Or is really and truly gone from this universe? That is assuming I did not save a copy of it to a clipboard, or text editor first. Yeah. Big mystery, right?
I kind of suspect there is something wrong with just this particular topic:
Just ask yourself why an easy question like this, is somehow 4 days old, with zero answers (and zero comments total) so far. Is no one, besides me, trying to comment on, or answer, this easy question? Please feel free to try to post a comment there yourself, just to see what happens.
Possibly the topic is activating your filters, because it has a bad word in it: Three letters. Starts with "g". I have heard rumors you all are running some crazy filters to try to protect users here from reading bad words, and perhaps from writing bad words too!
Also because you always strongly suspect the problem is with my computer (and maybe it is) I must tell you the browser I am trying to do this with is:
Firefox 51.0.1 (32-bit) and that is Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu.
and, uh, it looks like I am running it under: Ubuntu 12.04 (precise)
I thank you for your attention to this matter, and I applaud your efforts to make Instructables less buggy.
