Don't you hate it when you type out a long response to a question...only for it to be deleted?

That's five minutes of my life I'll never get back >:(

  • Ha! Ha! That's cute. I have totally been there. There was a question posted a few months ago that hit straight from the heart. When I finally finished my response, I posted it ONLY to find out that the question had been deleted. I too LOST those 5 minutes of my time/life. LOL!

  • I didn't know that responders could be deleted cuz of long answers. CM's system shows me how letters I have left from character I type. Maybe you can ask for that?

  • Yes I do. It is very annoying. I've had it happen when I've taken a great deal of time to think of an answer and word it just the way I want it so that it is helpful and kind, and when I click answer question, I get that the question was deleted. It's not even as though I could use the answer in another question, because I rarely bother to copy my answer first. Sometimes the member reposts the same question- and I understand that the first one may not have been worded the way she wanted it, but then I feel less inclined to write the carefully thought out reply.
