Ok, details please. Was this a one time and/or momentary thing today? What were you doing when this occurred, commenting, responding to? Or starting a discussion?

How often would you say it occurs? Is there a discernible pattern to it? Is it only when a certain activity is going on (commenting, responding or staring a discussion)? I know these seem like dumb questions but IT likes me to bring as much information as I can to them when I report an issue. These are all questions they will likely ask.

This has happened so many times today, I've lost count. It happens when commenting on someone elses topic - which is why I started a new topic. If you remember, I did the same thing last week out of desparation - and which you deleted.

Just type a long string of characters without a space. That will disturb a badly designed web page like this. It will probably be alRIGHT when there is no one LEFT.

I don't know if my observations are any accurate, but whenever I get that sort of message, I suspect it's either when the myLot admin are about to or in the midst of doing some upgrading/maintenance work on the site, or the myLot site is having some issues with the server. I just dislike it when all they tell you is to modify your text, but don't exactly tell you what is wrong with your text and what exactly is the thing that's causing the response not to go through. Normally what I do when I encounter that "error" is to close the browser window and reopen it, then try to repost. If that doesn't help, I try again in a couple of minutes or hours. Hope you are able to pull through this ordeal......

Actually, our favorite mylot admin has let slip in a previous topic that he has no knowledge whatsoever of technical things, and even he has to consult with the mysterious IT at times.

Oooh, not a very good thing to let slip to the myLot members! But well, I for one don't really mind if they require external help, as long as they make sure the site runs optimally with minimal issues and bugs.

I didn't "let slip" anything. I never claimed to be an IT guru, I never claimed to be working in any area involving technical aspects of this site. I am a moderator and account assistant and have never claimed to be anything more.

hi petersum I lost four responses last night due to those damned messages then one said unable to post content please try again,. trying " yes trying as in I am losing my marbles here mylot help us all before we all frigging go bananas,. and seein a herd of us lead by me and petersum running in circles' chanting " unable to post content, please modify over and over again." this is not funny at all, believe me as its given me sleepless nights and wondering when is all this going to be over.

the message has appeared to me before I even posted anything, I'd just hit the respond to discussion button. I still responded and went through piece of cake. Is it showing up like this for you, or like it normally does, when you've already posted your content?

Hatley, with all your aquired wisdom over the years, do you have any idea what can possibly be written WITHOUT numbers, letters and standard punctuation? Because I just don't know. When will it end, indeed!

I've had that come up before I've even posted content! I was still able to get the response to go through.. but mylot needs to do some vaccuming and dusting!

So if you see it, your safe. But when it's hidden, you don't know what might happen. That's encouraging - NOT. Vacuuming and dusting? You are SO polite. Sanding and grinding is more like it!

Dear Peter, Yes, it is so frustrating. Mylot needs a total and complete start from scratch.

Hi, I also had same problem while posting and commenting on my discussions responses. I patiently type again and again and at last I become successful in posting. Be patient. there may be some technical problem on mylot.

I am facing this occasionally even now but when I refresh the page and try to post my response again, it is working. I think this glitch seems to recur often.

Peter, that's exactly the same problem that i had been facing since the time Mylot down and arise again. That's why, you can me only spending time posting in other member's discussion. But, i am unable to comment back at my own discussion.Waiting for the expert to solve this problem...
