    It appears that any thread title containing the following three words will fail:
    Google, State, Search

    For instance, I tried to create a thread with the title "You search the state for any google results". It won't post.
    Leave out any of those three words and it will post.
    Hmm.. but it does let you post "Google eats state for search".

    Weird stuff..

    Yes, apparently so. But there has got to be some logic behind it.

    Anyhow, other people have reported that they couldn't post their thread(s).
    I'm curious about what their thread titles were.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much for now, there isn't much anyone can do if they haven't access to the server or scripts that are being executed on posting.

    It's definitely something serverside, not browsers. I did wonder if those rogue sites pretending to be sciforums were responsible initially, but again thats only known serverside due to logs etc.

    I agree that this looks like a server issue.

    For example, some people are having trouble with Firefox 4.0 and Windows 7, which is exactly what I'm running and I'm having no problems. Also the fact that the problem comes and goes, apparently depending on the thread title, seems to indicate a server problem.

    There's nothing I can do about this personally. This is a job for Plazma Inferno!

    Enmos is right, I tried to post one thread about 20 times from both my phone and computer, got blank screen on Phone and ie error message and v bulliton session time out message. Exact same thread because I copied my post into a pm. When I changed the title it posted

    OK, today I was able to post in Religion, but with a trick. First I posted a short titled thread starter, then later I changed the title and the post too. It might have worked the normal way, but I am getting tired of writing a long post without being able to post it...

    Edit: posted another one the normal way, now it seems to be working....

    I couldn't post “The Perfect Home Security System” in Free Thoughts.

    And “Solar Will Power the World in 16 Years” in both General Science & Technology and then Free Thoughts.

    Try to post it with just "test" as title but with the full post and if it goes through change the title.

    That doesn't work either. I've tried it in the mod forum. It seems that if the title is rejected, it is rejected no matter what.

    What's all this? Bizzarity.

    I saw this as it developed. Seems queer.

    I suspect GLSEN or some other militant homosexual network.
