Default Forum "Eating" Posts

I've seen others complain about this and experienced it more than once myself. Generally, it occurs when composing long posts, or taking an "abnormally" long time with the "reply" window open.

I suspect that the forum software is timing out as once you attempt to post the response things simply "hang" and the post never saves.

I'm wondering if there is a "time out" setting in the forum software--I think I've seen that type of thing in forum software I've set up (Simple Machines Forum).

As a workaround, one should always either compose in Notepad or a word processor OR at least do a copy of the text before attempting to post a long response or if you've had a window open for a long time.
