Now that's a bit amusing, as if the warning indicator
that one has left the keys in the car ignition
has been disabled to avoid bothering the driver :)

If you never send things, you mean;
otherwise the "draft" becomes a "sent";
at any rate, that's one *more* disadvantage
to saving when not asked for.

I think that this tendency to do something without
user request, when the user may not desire it,
and fail to do something else that might be highly desirable
(as well as safer and *less* annoying on the whole,
with fewer interruptions for asynchronous unexpected "saves"
in the middle of one's active typing),
isn't wholly satisfactory -- in the past, there were
options to suit separate needs, but now it's starting
to drift slightly in the same direction as a certain dominant company
that just decides what it wants to do and forces it upon the user,
often causing some annoyance.

So much for one opinion, and thanks for expressing Opera's side.
