How many use the "Reset Form" button during quick replies?

I have just noticed that I have never used the "reset button" when I make quick replies. Then, it struck me, How many other people don't? But this entire thread was spurred by the Tilted Suggestion section. I created this thread to get an account of how many people use this button and if they find it useful. I was personally thinkin' we should change it to a preview post button. *Dodging bullets and angry rants* I must say I have <b>no idea </b> how difficult this would be so if you strongly disagree with me then say so in your reply. Please express your opinion by voting on the poll as well.

I've "used" the reset button inadvertantly to delete my post.

Doh!

So I can't really vote.

shift-ctrl-home, del does as much and since I'm already typing, I don't have to reach for the mouse, so... I never do. When I have cause to delete everything, that is. Frankly, if it's going to stay, I'm sure a lot of people would to see it not quite so close to the "submit" button, a la Peetster's comment.

I usually habitually click post reply, because other forums I visit don't have this quick reply thingy.

Never even knew it was there.... I agree though, a 'post preview' button would make more sense. I mean, I would assume most normal people know how to select and delete text. But they might want to see what they're posting and if their smilies and stuff are correct. Then again.... TFP is not run by normal people.

Never used it and I don't expect to. But you could probably tell that from the quality of my posts.

I never even knew it was there. Used it for the first time on this past to see how it works. I have never felt the need to delete my entire post unless I just decided not to post.. in which case I normally just hit back or scroll up and click on another section. But hey thats just me.

109 views this thread has and yet I only see 24 votes? Thank you, to everyone who voted and posted their comment. But I would like to see a little more involvement from the forum. I made this thread for your benefit so if <i>change</i> were to come you'd have spurred it. Can't force you though.....but it'd sure be great if you'd vote at the very least.

If I want to erase everything I just highlight it all and hit delete.

I noticed it earlier today. That's about as far as I've come to using it though.

Hey, what about "check message length". Anyone use that?
Oh and, I'd also like a preview message button, but I can live without it
