[meta] Moderation Frustration

Okay, I asked a while ago about moderator approval for everything so I get the spam mitigation stuff and that AskBot is too retarded to support a simple karma test but this is quite frustrating.

Today I posted an answer. I then realised I had not included something useful so I wanted to edit it - no edit option because it's not posted yet. So I decided to write another answer and merge them later. This involved copying stuff off a webpage, adding a link, blah blah blah. I click answer question, close several tabs that I had opened as a reference only to arrive back at the original page to find my answer has been rejected because I "should edit my question". So now I've lost an answer that would have been useful and have to wait to rewrite it.
