It’s certainly possible to detect a keyup with JQuery so you could fire a delayed function on everykeyup…stopping the function onkeydown.

Basically, just using these two you could certainly write a function to clear the textarea after a specified period.

Might be a bit memory intensive though.

It’s beyond my ‘cut and paste’ level with JQ although it might be interesting.

You would have to assume that, barring any other interaction (such as a click on a ‘keep’ button or something), ALL text would be deleted once the function runs it’s course.
