Uh-oh! Q&A bug.........

By hippiekarl ·
Tags: Off Topic
My answer to the posted-yesterday question about 'computer slowdown' got cut in two, and only the second half posted (3 times). I just left a mess over there trying to get the first half to show up. When I clicked 'edit' each time to attempt to reinsert the missing text, IT WAS THERE, but as soon as I hit 'submit', it posted without it again. You have the missing text, but it just won't commit to the page. I even tried choosing a generic synonym for 'YouTube' (which I'd mentioned as a cache-hog) in case that was causing a 'spam-alarm' or something, but no go.
Has this happened to anyone else answering a question in the last day? HAL 9000? wizard57? (I know you two get to most of them first)....

At least until they can slice the spammers out of there.

the spammers on the list for testing, the testing of what I am not sure.

Regular folks, like santeewelding, who stop posting fall down the list, he is already at 37.

They should make a Hall of Fame for Absent Friends...
There are too many of them, by definition, but not too many to list.

I thought about doing that

by Michael Jay In reply to Yeah...

but it would be just too painful.

Yeah, I know.

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Yeah...

I thought maybe a just simple memorial hub post, and link it to the 'wake' threads, and the profiles of our Absent Friends.

It does hurt. Makes me wonder: Sometimes pain is a message we're not hearing. Not sure where to go with that, though.
