That go back arrow on the preview screen has got me twice in a week now. The words flowed forth like a greasy stick outta a dog's anus, so quick preview to make sure everything at least sorta makes sense - oops repetition!
Verging on the redundant so hit the back button to fix it and WHAMMO! the entire spiel disappears never to be seen again. Of course trying to re create what was just written comes out staler than a slicea xmas fruit cake in february.
Is that what the preview back button is meant to do? Ensure that all posts are spontaneous, including typos, spelling errors n repetitions, or is the change accidentally flawed?

Ah. That makes it a lot easier to understand. But they do have the "Go Back" button there to prevent such an issue. I know that hitting the back button is a habit, but eventually you will get into the habit of hitting the given "Go Back" button instead. Also, if you are worried that you might hit the wrong back button, then select all your text, and than Copy it before you hit preview, that way you can just Paste it back in.

using the "go back" button yields the same results as using the browsers' back button.

Using go back button in blogs before hitting submit deletes all user entered data, I am having to type blog with code in notes, and do a test post to see if things work correctly before hitting submit.
