His point is that the Reply button appears and is active even when you're not logged in. You can then compose a post, possibly a lengthy one. But when you click Reply again to post your message the system sees that you're not logged in, takes you to the login page--and loses everything you just typed!
Needless to say--but I will anyway--this is extremely frustrating and totally unnecessary in the design of a system like Khoros.
The Khoros system needs to be changed to either (1) not show Reply buttons at all unless you're logged in or to (2) save what you typed so that you can actually submit it without having to retype it once you've logged in. It's possible (1) can be affected by changing some configuration setting. Talk to your IT people responsible for this forum.
