I think it might be when you submit a post at the exact same time as someone else on that same thread a d whoever did it earlier will get the post first

@Richzx6r has it. If you reply, and someone gets there before you then when you got submit it will show your their reply and keep you in the post editor. Point being you can then add to your post if need be.

No I'm used to that one and you get a msg saying someone may have posted, sometimes it just does nothing.
