I've noticed when it's happened to me that I've used certain symbols or abbreviations, and those can cause the discussion to not go through. When I redid the discussion without them they went through just fine. I hope this helps you a bit hon. Hugs!

Well, i can say that i love short words to read only. Sometimes i do not have time so i just need to browse it fast, you really need to write short. Sometimes other people are not interested on topics. You should now what's in and out.That's what i think

Just out of curiosity, what State are you in? I have two cousins in New South Wales (Port McQuary). When we were kids, we always talked about going to Australia. He did...and never came back. His sister joined him about 8 years ago. I've also got a couple of goo (cyber) friends in Sydney.

There are quite a few things that can prevent a MyLot discussion from posting. The nickname for Richard is one of them. Any word that has a connotation that might be construed as a profanity. Greater than and less than signs. Square bracket...and so on. It's a real pain to figure out what they don't like in your post, because they don't tell you. Their parsing filter is really dumb sometimes.

I don't know your exact circumstances, but I do know that if you are trying to copy and paste any portion of it that it will not allow you to do so until after your post count reaches 500.

Why not just break it down into several short posts? Many people don't have the patience to read longer posts.
