Why can't I post a forum topic?

Why can't I post a forum topic?
It never, ever previews, I get "double post" from trying, it is painful.
I've been trying this one for about a week...

I would try with a different browser. I can't seem to answer questions using Safari, but Firefox works. It probably has to do with the javascript that the button activates.

I am using FF.
Now I find the "publish" button is grayed-out.

K, maybe IE or Chrome? FF should work but maybe it's a plug in or a setting that is tripping up the process. Past that I've got nothing. Submit a bug maybe?

That's a forum topic...

Oh. . . well, nvm.

Here's a thought, try your account on someone else's computer. It'll at least confirm that it's a browser issue and not an account issue. Maybe somebody decided they didn't want you mucking about the forums! :P

Bugger, it's still not responding...

. You're not making it past the Minimum IQ Check.
Do you have an IQ?
. I used to have one, but lost it about 10 years ago. I sure do miss it. :(

Make sure you don't have something like NoScript running that will mess it up. Personally I have endured endless pain from trying to do things like credit card transactions online- the systems almost never fail gracefully and say "this script is being blocked", they just get into a broken state and fall apart. You could even try (eughh..) Internet Explorer if all else fails in proper browsers.

Don't know - it works for me.
