Hi, all.

I don't know what happened--or is happening. I just don't know enough about posting messages on forums, etc.

I just tried to post a message on the "Dear Arlo" chain (?) and when I clicked preview the log in message appeared. So, I logged in again, and then I re-wrote the post and just tried submit, but the log in screen appeared again. So, I gave up and came here. The log in screen appeared again before I could get this screen to write the message.

I have no idea what happened to the drafts I wrote previously--did they evaporate--or are they still hanging out here somewhere in cyberspace?

I'm going to try to post this request but if the log in screen comes up again, I just won't know what to do.

Help! Thanks,

Swan

Here's a question for ya. Sometimes I will post in a topic and then go back to edit it if I see a mistake. When I try to repost it tells me that I cannot post that soon after my previous post. So I have to back and sit there for a couple of minutes, until it decides to let me post. This also happens when I make a post and then make another post a few seconds later.

What is this feature for? I don't understand it's reason for being. It just aggravates me.... :?

It is for a denial of service attack known as letter bombing.

It also helps prevent double postings to a degree...
