Warning prompt when writing a reply

  • When I wrote this reply https://www.sqlservercentral.com/forums/topic/sql-server-database-redunduncy#post-4148195 and pressed submit I got an error "Are you sure you want to do that?"

    I could be missing the obvious but I'm not sure why the website queried my post? Possibly it's looking at language and it thought my post had a negative tone to it? Unless I'm missing the obvious could the error message be improved to advise the reason?

    I think it's quite a while since I last replied to or created a new topic so it could relate to that.

    Thanks

    I've found (although not 100% sure) that happens if someone else has posted on the same thread while you're typing your post and haven't submitted it, yet.

    With that, I make the recommendation to ALWAYS copy 'n' paste your reply to notepad or MS word or whatever prior to hitting the go-button on any and all posts.  It also happens on other sites for different reasons and, so, it's now a de facto practice for me to do so on every site... and it has saved me a lot of time to do so... especially on large posts.

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    Change is inevitable... Change for the better is not.
