What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a Review Request Lets use as an example. Publish it. 2. Post a Review to the request that has a body_top, and several diff comments, and a body bottom. For example: . Publish it.
3. Create a draft to this review:
  3a. Add a comment to the header, enter some text, click ok.
  3b. Add a comment to the file, enter some text, click ok.
3c. Add a comment to the footer. Don't enter any text, click OK with it blank.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

Actual:  The comment for the header and file is deleted and lost for good.

Expected: The draft is still in tact with the comments on the header and on the file. Or in other words, the only way to discard a draft from the UI should be by clicking the discard button. This hidden discard by submitting a blank comment feature is bound to lose user data accidentally.
