I'm getting an "access forbidden" error when I attempt to post on some threads. Anyone have an idea what that could be?'

It's a weird quirk in the hosting service. There are certain innocent words that it will not allow, and it doesn't tell me which words they are so I can't predict when it will happen or try to override it. I've run afoul of it a couple of times myself, once when I used a word with the first syllable of "cas" and the second syllable of "ino". I don't remember what the second word was.

The best way to get around it is to reword your post trying to figure out which word they don't like. Apparently they don't care at all about cussing and naughty talk but will block you if you use a word related to a topic that's involved in a lot of spam.

If you can figure out which word it is, I might be able to unblock it for future use. The process is complicated though and so far I haven't tried to unblock the gambling den word.

That's just plain weird. I wonder why it didn't accept that word? But I've heard of people on other forums being blocked for using perfectly ordinary words that had no bad connotations or relationship to spam whatsoever.
