    I just tried to post a legitimate question in the forum but it was blocked. The warning message said my post was blocked because it contained… well to not get blocked again I’ll say that it supposedly contained the banned word of “the last letter in the alphabet” + “wallet” + “dot com”. The problem is that my post did not contain that banned word (website address). I used the back button on my browser to double check and confirmed that the offending phrase did not exist. What’s the deal?

    We have been having some maintenance issues today, Mike, and you are not the only one getting issues with the site right now.

    Abraham is on the case and we hope to have things back to normal very shortly.

    Which post is it? Can you post a link to it?

    Thanks for the help. This is the post, which obviously did end up being posted (after a moderator approved like the error message said, it I guess). No problem any more but there’s the info in case it helps you troubleshoot stuff.

    I see what happened. The word that was used was video+hive but it didn’t give you the notice of the right word. This has been fixed now.

    Appreciate the feedback.
