    Hi,

    It will help me a lot if you could add details about the conditions triggering the 403: URL of the post you were trying to reply to, and the time you got the error.

    Thanks.

    Re: 403 Forbidden

    I've been gettings these for weeks now.
    When I think a pattern is clear and test it, it works, so clearly my pattern wasn't the issue.
    I've had it fail in the last 24 hours from using code tags, then just with sentences. By moving some words around in the sentences, the post would go through. Not all code tags with commands fail.
    Sometimes 3-15 step posts fail. It is very frustrating. I was posting s p r u n g e.us links to text replies to get around the issue. Those should still be in the forums for multiple references for posts that didn't work. I like that pastebin option because it works with curl for posting. I suppose I could setup my own pastebin on a webserver I run to get passed the blocked URL from these forums.

    Re: 403 Forbidden

    It only started for me in the last week or so. I've had it fail from an empty Quick Reply window or from a Quick Reply moving to the Advanced Editor or trying to post a Quick Reply.
    No pattern I can see so far, except for me it seems to involve the Quick Reply.

    TheFu -- The word you are having difficulty with has an unwholesome "urban" connotation of a possibly distasteful sexual nature. At some point it was added to our list of disallowed words. Might be time to review that.

    You've lost me. Sorry. It isn't any specific word that I can tell which gets blocked in my posts. Normal written text is being blocked without any code tags or URLs. Rather than a 403 error, perhaps a content disallowed error?

    Heh.

    Sorry, the one you had to put spaces into.

    That one is extremely minor ... though I don't understand what being infatuated with someone else has to do with a failed spring (bed, springboard, shocks).

    If you follow any of the links - use lynx if you like - there are probably 5 examples of posts that were getting 403 Forbidden errors and I was either unable to figure out a way to get around whatever THAT issue was or just gave up. I've walked away from about 10 posts due to the forbidden error and just decided not to bother.
