I just was in the process of typing post in this thread. The browser suddenly refreshed to another thread on this site. I didn't click anything, I didn't touch the mouse. The browser just navigated to another thread. I'm not going to try and retype the post - it would take too long. :(

All kinds of weird things happen when I hit the ctrl key and not the shift key while typing. I really need to find a list of those somewhere.

Could that be what happened to you?

Not worth going into. Just a little pissed it happened.

I guess it's not something you want me to look into?

Here - I'm trying to replicate the issue by posting this - and will press the Ctrl button. Nothing happened.

Enter key - nothing happened.

Escape key - nothing happened.

With the issue noted previously, the page just refreshed to another thread with no input from me - keyboard or mouse. feel free to check if you like.

I just dumped myself from the site ctrl w and opened a new tab ctrl t.

I suspect there are many more.

What browser do you use here?

@J. H. Rasmussen I don't think there is anything for you to do.

Don't worry about it. I think it happened only one other time besides this one. If memory serves correct you and I bantered back and forth a couple times, and you mentioned that you often Ctrl-c your posts (or something similar).

Anyhow, don't worry. I'm past it. ;)

Not worrying, but I have had weird things happen to me at other sites as well and I need to figure out what my fat fingers are doing to cause the problem.

Maybe this thread should be locked. I seem to get at least a few notices a week of updates to this thread clearly by spammers, whose posts have been moderated by the time I get to the thread.
