I am trying to update an answer I just provided with some resource links - but it constantly keeps crashing on me and the kitty seems awfully busy by now :-)

Here's the question I answered:

I tried several times to add one or two links to relevant articles / blog posts, but no matter what I do (links inside the text or at the end of the paragraph), when I click on "save", the kitty comes up and the changes aren't saved.....

Fixed. The problem should be taken care of now.

Works again - thanks! – marc_s Jul 27 '10 at 13:53

I'm running into this as well on a question I created:

It already has a link in it, and didn't give me a problem when I first created it. Going back to fix a typo in the code, however, gives me busykitteh.

I'm having the same problem. I've tried editing some of my older answers, and I can't, if they have links and I keep the links in.

If I remove all links from the post, I can edit it.

Kitten kaboodles!

I successfully edited your comment. Is it only links that cause problems?


Ok I see this now. I tried to edit this answer and include a link to google and I get the error message consistently

Thanks - yes, it seems to be links: I added a few lines of text, saved - works fine. Then I went back and tried to add links to those resources - BOOM! Busy Kitty again....... – marc_s Jul 27 '10 at 5:17
@marc it appears to be every answer is now this way. Jeff broke something bad! – Earlz Jul 27 '10 at 5:35

Confirmed that this happens on ServerFault as well, not just SO
