    Occasional drop outs

    I have noticed an unusual happening on some threads or posts in the Lounge.
    This only happens occasionally. Most times things are fine without problems.

    It will happen when I click on some threads or posts. I will immediately get dumped out from these posts and will revert back to my IE home page. For example, the latest thread this is happening on is "kittens" in the Scuttlebutt forum.

    I have found that if I disable my popup blocker, then all is fine and dandy. No problems. Re-enable popup blocker and can't get into that particulat thread. ONLY THAT ONE. All others will work with or without the blocker disabled.

    I'm using the blocker in System Mechanic at this time. I'll have to try the XP popup blocker to see if that makes any difference. Strange.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    OK, I found it.
    ( at least for this thread )

    The three !!! in the Kittens thread was the culprit. After I took out that entry in the blacklist ( !!! ) it works fine.

    Just for a matter of education on my part was the set of exclamation marks a default setting or one you had added?

    Hi Jerry,
    Those three !!! were part of the list of default settings. I think I looked through those blacklists a few times and didn't spot that at all.

    Only when I set it to log all hits and cleared out the log file before trying to click on that thread, did I see what was being rejected.
