I haven't lost any text, because when I go to the footswitch post that got chopped off, in edit mode the whole post is still there. I copied the whole post into word after I was finished and copied that into an email to Alex, but even that did get to him full. I will try posting the full post on his thread again to see if that works. In regards to the moderation, I fully expect that the forum is moderated. The point was that no other forum, manufacturer or otherwise, have I had to wait to have a post show. I'm just letting you know that it gets a bit slow and tedious when you can go over to another forum and get a response to a question from a fellow user immediately. Thanks for your consideration.
