    This problem seems only to happen when switching from visual to source code in threaded discussions. Sadly, the plug-in that provides threaded discussions is provided as-is; it has numerous flaws (for example, no searching), but is nonetheless good enough. It is best only to use visual or source editor (in threaded discussions) and not switch between them.

    Thanks. I'll try to remember to always copy my text to a clipboard before switching. The tricky thing is that sometimes switching is possible and unlike on normal pages, there is no warning when things will get lost.
