 Since this ticket is about changing strings in our messages, it may be a
 good time to discuss making a bigger change.

 I think "There was an error when posting that reply" sounds a little cold.

 Perhaps "We encountered an error when attempting to post your reply" would
 sound better?

 If we made this change, then other strings should follow a similar pattern
 using possessive pronouns.  Messages like "Activity deleted successfully"
 would change to "Your activity item was deleted successfully".

 Moving to 2.4 for more time to discuss this.
