    Well, maybe not but why is it that I log in, compose a thread and click "Submit" and I'm all of a sudden logged out and the body of my work is lost!

    That sucks!

    I have a feeling you went too long without "activity" and you were auto-logged out.

    You can avoid this by opening up your buddy list. If the buddy list is open, you can spend as much time as you want on a new thread without worry as to whether or not you'll be logged out after 10 minutes (or whatever the time interval is). :)
