A few minutes ago I disconnected my computer from my network to try and reproduce a problem for someone. After doing so I plugged my ethernet cable back in, but stopped short of having it all the way in, and without realizing it was still not connected to the internet. I then went and replied via comment about my observations while offline. I didn't get an error when doing so and the enter comment textbox closed. A few minutes later I discovered that I was not in fact actually online, and that the comment I'd tried to post on superuser had vanished into the aether because there wasn't a page refresh involved for my browser to go back to.

I'm using Win7-64, and Opera 10.62.

Have to ask. Where is the Bug? – BinaryMisfit Sep 26 '10 at 8:37
Are you saying that you can't post to the internet while not connected to the internet? Please clarify. – Piskvor Sep 26 '10 at 9:49
The bug is that the failure to successfully post is not detected by the script. – Dan Neely Sep 26 '10 at 13:04
Interesting. When I try doing this (WinXP FF 3.6.10), I didn't get an error message either, but the existing comments disappeared and the comment I typed did not appear either. – Jon Seigel Sep 26 '10 at 13:35

Seems like the issue had been resolved after the question was asked. I tried it in all (latest) major browsers and I always get an error popup:

So status-norepro then? – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 11:35
I would rather say status-completed since the java-script code in question has definitely changed since the bug was reported... – m0sa Jul 3 '13 at 11:46
