I've had this two but not often.. But then again the DNS servers my ISP uses can get a bit pissy a lot of times in their own right, so I rarely notice it.

Depending on your browser and the forum settings the session might not be staying put.


For example:

My desktop is generally set to remember every thing and hang on to cookies, etc. I almost never get that problem unless I've stepped away for a long time (cookies expired, session logged out, etc).

My laptop on the other hand, I generally have things set to 'this data will self destruct" when I close my browser. That keeps the cookies from hanging around in case my laptop gets stolen. I experience such issues more frequently from my laptop.


Even then forums (like most well behaved systems) will log out your session after a certain amount of time and cookies usually should have an expiration date/time. Some boards softwares allow the time out rate to be configured.


Ippimail is a good example, they are careful to nuke in active sessions to the webmail/forums quickly for the sake of people at internet cafes and public terminals.
