Did you have anything like g + + or g c c without the spaces?

There are several keywords that will get caught by a filter.

Possible server side processing &/or tricking people into compiling dangerous code with copy & paste.

This is related, but sort of off topic. For one of my snippets, I said to be sure to include < math . h > (no spaces). It didn't appear. Why would that be filtered out as well?

#include <math.h>



...that would be a 'no'.

Right, but a better user feedback warning the user he may be potentially using forbidden words would help a lot, and would definitely reduce the administrative overhead of answering the schmucks like me who wonder why the website is suddenly breaking when answering a particular post.

Because that's what it looks like, really.

The include thing is likely an html entities thing. Try using < instead.

Hi, I am getting this same forbidden page when I try to post in the VB6 forum, but I don't understand what I need to do to fix it...?

Some text that you have provided is being caught in the filter. Reply to this post & please attache a text file of the code you are trying to post, & I'll be happy to go over it for you.
