I didn't have such problems since Windows 98, which used to crash more often than not
Can you describe what exactly happens when your postings enter Nirvana? Do you get an error message? Or do they just dissolve into rainbow light? What exactly appears on your screen?
Generally speaking, it may be helpful to make sure your system is up to date. Do you regularly update your operating system? Your browser? Which browser are you using, btw?

If someone else posts while you are writing, the system notifies you that this has happened, suggests that you might want to read the new posts before submitting and asks if you still wish to submit. If, while all this is happnening, another post goes up the whole thing repeats. If you leave at any time during this process, the post is pretty much gone.
moral of the story: after hitting "submit" do not move on until you see the confirmation message "post has been successfully submitted". If you don't get that message, there are dialgoue boxes open and you need to scroll up to see them sometimes.
