    I don't start a new discussion too often, but it seems frequently when I do, while I'm still typing the info, and usually right after I've just hit the space bar to start a new sentence, the screen disappears and returns to the list of discussion topics.  And my entire typed input has disappeared from the site (I know it doesn't autosave) and my computer!   Ahhhh- so much wasted time and effort.   WHAT am I doing wrong???

When you start a new thread you are just at the bottom of the discussion list page.  Are you sure you aren't just accidentally going to the top of hte page and your post is still on the bottom?

Nope, I've checked that in case the screen just "jumped".  I am be-fuddled.

Does your keyboard have any special buttons on it? 

ie:  Mine has a "Back" and "Forward" key underneath the spacebar.  They function the same as Back and Forward buttons on my browser.  If I've strayed too far to the inside of the keyboard with my thumbs it's possible for me to hit them.

Also...  Alt-Left Arrow Key is a keyboard shortcut for "Back".

ahhhh- my Right pinkie might be hovering over that back arrow sometimes and accidently hit it when I mean to space. Thanks for the insight!
