Having a hard time posting.

Postby teenageriot-1 » 09 Jun 2017, 04:41

Keep getting Forbidden 403'd and the like. Only managing to post right now through a proxy. Anyone else experiencing these problems?

I think I only get the "Forbidden" thing if there's some word or combination of words in my post that trips the spam filter... and sometimes it's hard to guess what that is! Is it possible that that's what's happening with you?

Yeah, I get it. I'm still inclined to think it's the spam filter, but somebody else may know more...

It is the spam filter.

Or there are some words in your post that have to do with gambling, such as p0ker or casin0.
One more thing: you have to let it lie for a while before trying to post anything again, or that increases the time out . First time it happened to me, I just kept trying again and got locked out for nearly a day.
