    account trouble or forum bug ?

    I tried to report this tread as (maybe) spam :
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2063998


    The forum tells me
    koenn, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    If you have made fewer than 50 posts, access to your User CP is restricted. See here for more details.
    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    I'm pretty sure I clicked the report button, not a CP link. The URL in the address bar says
    http://ubuntuforums.org/report.php?p=12265980



    Is there a problem with my account or is the report button broken ?

    This happens to me all the time, so I'm used to it now.
    It can also happen if you let the page sit for a couple of minutes and then refresh.
    I've also had this happened when I click the thread and am not logged in, then go to log in and am directed to the warning page.
    I figure if I really was doing something troublesome, they'd(staff) fire a warning shot across me bow.
