Default I hate you.

Ok, not really. But I did just type at least 50 lines of reply, only to have it killed when it refused to post the >800x1200 attachment.

Yes, this is terrible!
Imagine you have put a lot of work in to a nice post
and it is all lost.

It has happend to me.
Now I sometimes, COPY & PASTE into Notepad,
before Pressing the Submitt.
At least on the longer posts - just in case ...

I guess this problem has happend to most of us.

I too have pecked my heart out only to have it thrown out like the days rubbish. And I can never put the same effort on the second try. I often write a short post, then edit it until I'm happy. So if you see crap post from me, try again in 10 minutes. I may not be finished.

This has happened to me too. I now don't attempt posting graphics with more than 780 pixels in any direction, and I copy to the clipboard before attempting anything clever like adding a graphic. Surely this shouldn't be necessary?

IIRC,

The limitations on graphics are 100KB file size and no larger than 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high.

Certainly in IE5 on the Mac, you can just use the browser's back button to get back to your original message if the post is rejected. I do it all the time

You used to be able to do that, but I have found that now when I click back, the message box is empty (except perhaps of a quote script)
