Why do some comments fail to be submitted, and what can be done about it?

Is there a way to change how the form submit works on the observation pages? It’s very frustrating. I just got burned by this again. I typed up a long comment on an observation with links and all, then hit submit and got the dreaded “failed to save record” and it wiped out everything I’d typed!

Most sites if a form fails to submit, it doesn’t completely erase the form contents in the process. On many other sites, even when I submit a form and it loads another page and then throws an error, I can still use the browser back button to go back and my form contents are retained.
