And usually it causes unwanted drafts !

I am a beginner, i will start typing some things in WP and just some 
seconds later .. i decide not to publish or save them and close the 
Browser ! and te next time i come back to writing screen i will see 
those as Drafts there ... not interesting at all ;)

Saving as a user option and temporary is better .. i think.
