If you'd care to read the forums you keep pointing to, you'd notice the cause as being something a bit less insidious. Namely, the host disconnecting before you can properly save.
erwing you should really read up on the subject you speak of. according to the Randy Pitchford (the CEO of gearbox) Borderlands was developed and created for PC first and foremost. his words exactly from Maximum PC nov issue : "The first thing is we author our content on the PC. With Borderlands we're not porting the game to PC, we are starting there. The PC is our development platform. The best looking version of the game that you're going to get is on PC." SO its NOT a port TO PC but the other way around. which means your rants are useless like you are

As to the post above me...you're right. Google for 30 secs you'll find the 3 main ones if not more by now. Most people use the 2 that were posted (linked to) on just the boards here. lol
Rick's is probably the most common. Even I use it now just to save myself the time when weapon editing.
