Naah. You could be prevented by

-- a slip of the fingers that caused you to miss the post to which you're

-- a phone call, triggered by an association that might or might not be
made in someone else's mind;

in your guts;

-- a stab of your cat's claws;

any of which could delay your posting long enough to forget what you were
thinking about.
