This question already has an answer here:
- Manually clear saved question drafts 5 answers
I've seen a few questions related to this, but they seem to be predominantly about question drafts and I want to talk about answer drafts.
Is there a reason for not clearing an answer draft if I remove all text from the textbox and then leave the page?
Sometimes I find I start writing an answer, but then reconsider posting it for various reasons -- either I feel my tone isn't neutral enough or someone already posted a better answer while I was typing mine up, etc. I don't like the idea of leaving the draft to hang around and wait for me to accidentally hit "post", so I'd like the ability to clear the draft permanently if I decide not to post.
I thought that deleting all text and leaving the page would "save" a blank draft, but that doesn't seem to work that way. I also tried George Edison's script, but the "clear" doesn't persist.
Do I have any other options other than typing up answers in Notepad just in case or being extra careful with my mouse clicks?
