    Sucuri keeps stopping me replying to a thread

    I've been trying to post a reply to this thread all afternoon/evening:
    http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...and-paste.html
    I've replied to it before, but now I keep being blocked by Sucuri, with the reason given being: 'Your request was not authorized due to its content (HTML code not allowed'. There isn't any HTML code in the reply - it's entirely plain text - I've even tried taking off the -FORMULA- tags which were on there, but no joy.

    I've had problems in the past with Sucuri stopping me accessing the site entirely, but this is the first time I've been able to get on, but not reply...
    Anyone else having this problem?

    Screenshot of the error:
    20160113 Cant post to _It sets date format wrong when copy and paste_.jpg
    Regards,
    Aardigspook

    Recently moved house, internationally, during COVID (!) so am a bit busy and may not reply quickly. Sorry - it's not personal - I will reply eventually.
    If your problem is solved, please go to 'Thread Tools' above your first post and 'Mark this Thread as Solved'.
    If you use commas as your decimal separator (1,23 instead of 1.23) then please replace commas with semi-colons in your formulae.
    You don't need to give me rep if I helped, but a thank-you is nice.

    Seems the server is having problems with < and > signs, thinks they are HTML or something. Add a space after them, seems to work
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Adding a space after the > did it - thanks for the advice (and the quick reply, though I didn't see it until today!).

    _ - ….I knew there were a lot of word combinations that kick up the scurry thing.., and the space trick seems to solve that. Had not twigged that it over comes a < or > problem. Will have to remember that

    Edit: I did try a test just now in the test Sub Forum
    http://www.excelforum.com/developmen...ml#post4289596
    When I posted the > > > < or > from there , here without a space it sets off the scurry thing.
    When i tried to post it there... it worked
    ... so seems different problems in different Sub Forums... had not noticed that one before.. Another oddity.. but the space trick is always worth a try when the scurry pops up!!!!.


    Edit 21.Jan.2015
    <or>...... works now here also ?!

    @Aardigspook,
    You ( or anyone else catching this thread in the future ) may wish to check this Thread out if you have a similar problem in the future.
    http://www.excelforum.com/developmen...th-number.html
    I expect originally your problem may have been trying a text combination of a __<__ in combination with 4 Letters or Numbers, such as this

    <2013

    If you try to post that or anything similar

    <ab45
    <wer4567
    <pooh

    You will get the Scuri thing.

    I have done the “black color trick” to get those to post here without throwing up the Scuri Thing


    <a[COLOR="#000000"]b[/COLOR]45
    <wer[COLOR="#000000"]4[/COLOR]567
    <p[COLOR="#000000"]o[/COLOR]oh



    Alan
