    I logged in, clicked the verification e-mail message, and my username appears at the top so I figure I did my homework.

    I went into a discussion group and posted my concern about using Front Line on my cat. When I went to "Create Thread" an error showed.I would include it here but I don't know what URL being requested means. The message said: The following error occurred... and then discusses something suggesting that my message looks like spam. I cannot even highlight and copy the test. My message had no attachments, links, font attribute changes, just plain text.

    I am still stuck.

    (P.S. OK, this message was accepted but my original post will not go.)

    Your original post was not allowed because you were putting in a link to a website. You will need to have made 25 + posts to do this. You can mention the site but not add a link. Hope this answers your question

    Try again, I'll reply to your thread in the cat section then just hit 'post reply' at the bottom - this should work OK :)

    There was no link. Please show me if you do find one.
    I posted my frustration in a thread and someone suggest that I place the information in a reply to his message.
    I copied the same message and it worked.

    Sorry I misread your first post. Have you tried posting a new thread of your own?
    It is possible that not all of your permissions had gone through when you posted initially. However I have to say I am not entirely sure what happened

    The original attempt failed many times until I gave up and sent that note in to the admin. I tried to post again 12 hours later and it still failed. I used copy/paste to submit it.
    I then just left a note of my frustration figuring that it would also be rejected but the note of frustration stuck. Someone suggested I repost my message as a reply and it worked. I have received one response so far.
