Cancelling a response

Ran into a not-too-pressing problem.

I wanted to cancel a response in a thread.  Hit the “Cancel” button which brought up a screen with the line, “Are you sure you want to cancel?”  And here is the problem.  The options to select were, “OK” followed by “Cancel.”  Now if I want to cancel my response to the thread, I should select the “OK” choice which results in cancelling the response.  But it makes more sense to select the option, “Cancel” because that is what I am attempting to do, but that choice doesn’t cancel the response; it leads me back to the response that I am attempting to CANCEL!

‘Tis a fortunate day for me that I am only half crazy and hit the “OK” choice; otherwise, I’d be going from one “Cancel” button to another, and back again to the first, and then to the second, and then to the first. . . .  Yup, could drive a fellow completely batty.

Its asking the correct question. When you select cancel its then asks if you really want to cancel your response just in case you got there by mistake or fat fingers. By hitting the OK you are confirming you really want to cancel and not post the response you just typed. You can always just back out of the Add Reply window by hitting the back button on your browser. That is a whole lot better than losing your typed response when it decides you need to log in again.

Yes, Bob, it is a simple procedure.

My point was that many of us old dogs will gravitate to the “Cancel” button to confirm the first “Cancel” button.

If my words on these posts would truly say what my mind is attempting to let out–my difficulty in relating ideas these days.

No big deal, Bob.  I doubt if using either of those buttons will rattle the Universe.
