There is a rational explanation. I think that the clipboard deleted my last entry. Not sure why.

The problem with the clipboard method is that it is only good for one reply.  I typically have several replies open.  Also, as you have experienced, you never know when the clipboard is going to get flushed behind your back.  There is also the issue of losing the clipboard when logging out, and you can't temporarily paste the clipboard to a simple text editor (although there may be ones that won't lose the formatting).

Oddly, I did the "switch user" and switch back thing again, and this time a reply survived.  It's not even consistent.
