This is not the first time that I have written a long commentary, directed to sign in, and then watch my comment completely disappear. The patch needs to correct this. Why bother gathering your thoughts, spend time typing, and see it not being posted. Has this happened to anyone else? It does not always disappear and I always follow the same process. It is apparently a very bad flaw and needs to be corrected.
