Preview in Q&A

What do people think about having a preview in the Q&A section? Only brief answers are allowed (as should generally be the case), so if you accidentally post over the limit, your response is trunctated. I had this happen the other day and I had to make an Editor Request to vroom to get this corrected.

With a preview, we could see if we're getting cut off, or if we forgot that closing </I> tag, etc.

Cheers,
Ovid

    I like the idea purely from the point of view that I can make corrections / pretty up the format before anyone gets a chance to see it.

    I would like to be able to preview all of my posts.

    In addition to maverick's excellent point that it is important to edit, a preview/post cycle winding at a message saying that you posted this could stop the occasional irritating multiple submission we get.

    I like the idea of previews, particularly for things you cannot edit later.
