lol..I have experience similar symptoms not exactly the policy page although I remember I got the web policy page while back once, but when posting the actual post goes no where, because of this I have developed a simple technique to save the text I have typed in case it is lost but happens occationaly not all the time.

Hi Dandy

I have had this happen once or twice though like the previous poster I didn't see the "web policy" page. I have received some kind of error message.

A couple of times I have noticed that this will happen if I have more than 1 browser tab open towards the forums, as I am prone to do when answering posts.

And like Jorge, I have also gotten into the habit of saving the texts of my posts, just in case.

Maybe one for Moulder and Scully :)

Best Regards,

It's possible for your session to time-out while you are typing your post. I think there's a strict 30 minute timer ... I never really checked it.

If your session expires while you're composing, when you hit "Post" it will fail with an error.

If it keep happening, check your firewall, IDS, and / or other intermediate security devices.

Save your posts before punching out.

Good Luck

Thanks for all the reply. This is the first time it happens to me. Regarding the session timeout, it never happens to me. I can switch to VPN (with no split tunneling) and back and the session continues.

Yes, from now on, I will copy and paste my reponse to NOTEPAD before hitting "Post" :)
