Strange error

I'm getting a strange error when I've tried to post. It says: "Please correct the highlighted errors and try again.  Post flooding detected (community got posts of a unique message more than 1 times within 3,600 seconds)".  Nothing was highlighted and I hadn't attempted to post before then, so I don't know how I could be "flooding" the board.

Re: Strange error

Is this happening when trying to copy/paste from a Word document?  Or is it just typing up a post?

Re: Strange error

It happened after I typed up a post. As I hit the post button again, it gave the same error basically, that post flooding was detected and to look for the highlighted passage. I finally got it to post AFTER I posted this error message, but I've never encountered that error before.

Re: Strange error

We've encountered this error before, but normally it's after trying to cut/copy/paste from a Word document.

 

If it happens again, click the HTML tab above the text editor and see if there's a lot of nonsensical HTML formatting that needs to be cleaned up.  If it continues on a "regular" basis I might need to get the developers involved to track down the issue.
