Vanishing posts?

I wasn't sure the first time it happened, but now I've seen it again. A post can vanish after you make an edit.

Yeah, because the problem with the database sometimes edit makes the whole topic vanish. However if you go into your browser history and go back to the post you were replying too, you can usually pull the topic back up and if you reply to it the thread will return to visibility.

Editing big posts is hopeless because of the bug, but you can usually get away with editing smaller ones. Just keep that history trick in mind.
