Is anyone else having issues sending PM’s? Some days it works and other days it doesn’t. When it doesn’t work I get a message saying ‘ Invalid verification text. Please try again”.

Anyone else see this? Thanks!

Occasionally.

Sometimes I can post links, other times not. Are you including a link?

Or perhaps an innocent word tripping the filters?

Clear cookies and try again.

Thanks for your responses. I wasn’t sending any links as that doesn’t work for me.

After many ‘tests’ with different TA friends, finally it worked! So who knows why it happens to me. This all just started a few weeks ago, but all is good for now.

I got the message this morning, cleared cache and all was fine.

But yes, it does seem rather random.

I haven’t been asked to do a captcha for the PM system for a long time but asked frequently in order to respond to Q&A’s
