Personal Privilege! Please Read!

I was writing several paragraphs of a well-reasoned and substance-based post regarding Secretary of State Tillerson, the Russian invasion of Crimea, Exxon's relationship to Russia's Gazprom, the unjustified movement to eliminate the sanctions against Russia, and referring to Putin as a pissant, and as I neared the end of the post, it literally disappeared from the screen. Somebody, somewhere did NOT want that post to see the light of day. I'm not a nut case, and I have posted before. This was WEIRD.

3. I will, later. I spent around 45 minutes on it, and I can't do it again right now.

But I definitely will later. Thanks for your support, Cha!

20. Yes, most modern phones auto-delete

well-reasoned-looking text. Which is why most texts are stupid.

7. Oh shit, they're on to you.

Burn your phone immediately and initiate protocol Frigid Speculum.

We'll meet at the safe house (Buffalo Wild Wings near the mall) to plan our next move.










Or your phone just hiccuped and lost your post.

8. OK - THAT got me laughing!

But really, I've never had any problems with this phone. I'm baffled as to why the whole thing just vanished and was unrecoverable. Truly strange.

9. Before I post a magnum opus I type and save it elsewhere

I use the notepad or Word to work it out and then I paste it into the OP.

10. If you are composing an elaborate post

It is better to do it on a desktop or laptop computer in a text editor. Once you are satisfied you paste and post. As a side benefit you also have a saved copy of your post.

12. If you were on the move, your signal may have flipped from one tower to another or

if standing still did a large truck or bus pass between you and the tower. Some possible reasons.

Long posts reduces readership.

14. No, I was sitting on my couch. Live away from traffic and noise.

As I said above, I suspect I probably accidentally deleted it. It's very likely my own unintentional action that caused this. But I deeply appreciate everybody's helpful insights. Thank you.

18. "a well-reasoned and substance-based post" - when I do those, they sink like stones ("disappear")

But when I commit the occasional erratic, throwaway, off the top-o'-th'-head type, they attract the most personally insulting of my fellow members of the board and I seem to have the talent of drawing out from them the most vociferous emotions in their psyches.

And, quite contrary to my "well-reasoned and substance-based" posts, those flamefests *immediately* accrue hundreds - like, FIVE HUNDRED!1 - Views, meaning that the silent Viewers are being salaciously entertained to see me flayed raw.

19. It might be best to write it first in word pad (or similar)

then copy paste.
