Me too, but the longer I do that, the more complacent I become, until finally I forget there's a problem and I lose a post.

I'm not sure if the post is doomed from the moment you start typing it, or if it times out if you take too long typing it. If it's the latter then we can't expect the buttons to change between rendering and clicking. The countdown is a good idea.

A warning on the submit button might be a simple workaround.
