Painful editing experience with forums
I've just joined java.net and tried to sumbit a question in the forums - the formatting options for posting are incredibly painful to use:
- it took me quite some time to carefully format the text and surround content with pertinent tags, then when I submit it seems all formating is ignored and the post is just displayed as plain text on the forum.
- there is no preview to see how the final reult should look.
- clicking on "More information about formatting" took me to another page and helpfully cancelled all my painstakingly inputted post.
- all sorts of weirdness when I paste text from other sources, especially links.
