ok I have to be careful this time. I was commenting on some meaningful topic on "Meaningless Drivel" , when I submit my comment I got the error page saying I used abbreviations. Ok here are my questions

1) does it really matter in "Meaningless Drivel" ?
2) When i saw the error page i was like "ok" I will change "u" to "you" and clicked the back button to edit my MEANINGFUL comments and ahhhhhhhh !! its gone, i got the page with a blank comment field. where are my comments gone ??? Golden words are not repeated so I guess my comments are gone forever. (

The system was able to catch if i have used abbreviations but the system was not able to catch my comments for editing. I am sad, depressed and frustrated.. just kidding !! I will make sure that i have not used any abbreviations before posting this one, if I miss any then this is also going to trash (

Whether your browser "remembers" your previous input is dependant on your browser. My browser doesn't have this problem, but I have used browsers that did. The safest thing is to save your comment (sometimes even by Control-A, Control-C) before you hit the backspace key.

Or better yet, use correct words in the first place.

Or a better browser...

I regularly have this problem with IE.
