in reply to Kill your "Comment" before you post since it's incorrect?

Dear Monks,

So far, everyone has misunderstood my question, so I must have done a poor job of explaining my concern. Since I do a lot of "preview"s before hitting the "create" button, I would not want to lose that feature.

My question is about freeing the PM resource(s) that was(were) allocated when I hit the "comment" button. If it's freed automatically, then my question is academic.

I did see today the following comment:

    "Please delete, I mis-understood the question."

I will do that if that's the correct way to freed the PM resource(s) allocated for my mis-understanding of the question.

Regards...Ed

    I don't know the code, but I'm 99% sure that starting a comment does not save anything into the server's database until you really submit it, so going back or closing the window is really enough ;-)
    (There are forums where draft articles are auto-saved regularly but there's no such feature here, so it wouldn't make any sense to save something on the server)

      IIRC, technically speaking, it might reserve a row/node_id theoretically, and might save content into a session/cache table that gets emptied often, but none of this is matters as there is no "cancel" option

        It might, but it doesn't. For better or worse, when you are on the "Preview" page, the only copy of your post in the universe is in your browser's memory.
