I took a long time to type up a very thorough answer, hit the post/submit button, and left for dinner. I came back to my computer several hours later and found that my post attempt was stuck on Human Check. I didn't have the presence of mind to try the back button (just in case it would have worked) but I completed the Human Check and then I got sent back to the list of questions. I did go back to that question just to check but my answer wasn't saved as a draft and neither was it posted.

So why wasn't my answer at least saved as a draft?

Do you have a browser? –  random May 4 '12 at 2:05
    
Back button usually loads from browser cache, so it would have recovered it. Though on doing the Human Check, the answer should get submitted. –  Manishearth May 4 '12 at 2:57
    
@random I was using chrome. –  HK1 May 4 '12 at 9:39
