I've just tested out your permissions and it seemed ok to me. Try switchig it off and on again and give it another whirl; if you're still having problems keveh will have to look at it.

I've got that one a couple of times and told Keveh. I can't remember the solution but believe it was a server problem.

Sometimes it can be the words that your post includes.

Yeah it's the words in the post hitting the spam filter. If you hit it you're IP is blocked for 10 minutes.

If it happens just let me know what time it was you tried posting so I can check the logs and remove the rule you hit.

Was it "4-5-1"? That's a dirty one.

Referring to well known medications does it. I've been locked out twice. The second time was a bit of a Homer "doh!" moment, as it was 10 minutes after the first.

Thanks for that. There was indeed a reference to a certain should we say performance enhancing medication beginning with v and ending with agra. I shall avoid it in future, not that I use it, I hasten to add.

I've never tried it because my doctor recommended its esteemed competitor (begins with c and ends with s) as the effects lasted three times as long. I got married (again) at the advanced age of 66 and needed performance enhancing drugs. They certainly work - in the words of Mrs. Shufflewick you have to swallow them quickly or you get a stiff neck. :wink:
