    "Posting here sucks" thread

    Ever since going to the new format, I am constantly getting these goddam messages before I can post and to be honest it just plain sucks.


    If you are getting this same thing when you try to post, let them know.

If you are reading this, then you are likely a human trying to post a comment or log in to the website. Continue by entering the CAPTCHA.

    I'm not man, sorry, sucks to be you.

    That said, I gotta give you props. If I had to deal with what you are.. I, simply stated, wouldn't even come to the site much less post to it.

    Well, hopefully I am the only one. I am using a laptop linked to a WiFi in the house and I don't know if that is what is triggering it or not but it flat out sucks and if more people are getting the same crap it might explain why the forum has become the dead sea.

    I just hope there is someone with the clearance to do something to prevent this because it is tiresome getting every 5 posts or so. Until then I suspect there will continue to be more of those messages in my posts.

    It means someone from your location or you has been flagged for potential issues/attacks before here or against another site that subscribes to our security service. I can exclude you if you just message me.

    I would like to know if its happening to others...and if its mostly AOL people getting it.

    well I'm on AOL and haven't seen that happen to me, like PF I'm using a laptop connected to the house Wi-Fi as well. I'm running XP as well if that is relevant at all

    Switch from AOL to another IS & while you're at it you may want to ditch your MySpace account & try Facebook.

    Seriously though, I had it happen to me once when the changeover was made & I do see that message occasionally attached to others posts.

    For what it is worth, I am on Frontier Broadband and not AOL. As far as being flagged, I am not sure how that works or how it happens but I don't have any problems anywhere else. This happened immediately after the change over to this format and it has happened consistently since then. It seems when I post links or use emoticons it is almost 90 percent certain I will get it.

    I have sent several messages within that "Optional message for site owner" space that I probably can't repeat on here.


    But yes, if there is a way to exclude me please do.

    For what it's worth, I get flagged every now and then - mostly when I quote posts from PF.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    between your usual drivel, and adding PF's nonsense, the system is probably thinking "This can't possibly be a real person coming up with this stuff!"
