I just finished typing up a somewhat lengthy self-answered question and hit submit. As I had 6 tags on my post instead of the allowed five, I was shown the validation error explaining this.
On that screen declaring I had too many tags, my shiny new answer was gone.
Imagine my horror. Thankfully it was not gone gone; if I uncheck/recheck the "Answer my own question" box, the text pane for the answer does come back pre-populated with my answer.
Is this a bug? If not, could someone explain the rationale to me?
