Yes Jason, I hit "edit" then click "Go Advanced" then hit "post message" and they tend to reappear. This is per the directions gorgi gave to help when I had an issue on a much earlier occaision. Don't ask me why that does the trick -?
EDIT: I had originally made a mistake in the steps (above) I was taking to correct the problem. I had said to hit "reply" and then the other steps. The correction is to hit "edit" first & then the other two steps. Fixed my original post now.
You think this has something to do with the forum itself or with our own operating systems or something else?
Now they'll be gone again after this post ;) .
