    Typing anything remotely long-form on this site remains as big of a pain in the ass as always.

What's the problem?

The fact that the post page expires about a few minutes, so if it takes you longer to type anything, you have to copy-and-paste it into a new one.

Agreed. A session counter or extending the session would do the long-writers a favor. mk

It's probably the markup he's talking about. You can't write + without a \ in front of it, or else it'll bold your text.

Nah, I'm fine with markdown (even if this site uses a non-standard version for some reason). I do most of my word processing these days in Typora, which is markdown-based.
