Sorry if the title is confusing, but when I try to put some text at the top of the question with a comma ending the line and press "save changes", the text dissapears.

You can watch a video of me trying to write "Hi all," as my starting statement and then watching it dissapear when the changes are saved: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8nGJZi9RcPHRkZMY2NaZUo0d1k/view?usp=drivesdk

    \$\begingroup\$ I want to add "hi all" to my post. That's exactly what we don't want you to do. Read the rules (duh). \$\endgroup\$ – Olin Lathrop May 2 '16 at 16:41

This is by design. See Should 'Hi', 'thanks', taglines, and salutations be removed from posts?

We now automatically remove salutations from posts as they are entered.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I think the problem is that they appear on the hover summary and render the summary less useful as the first line has only a greeting. \$\endgroup\$ – Transistor Jun 3 '16 at 23:20
