Can I putHTML tags anywhere in my report?
No. In an effort to keep the website uniform in appearance, the standard font and color prevails.
Why is my post killed because of a 'CYRYL lameness warning'?
Our board is protected by a script routine that reads all posts before they go on the board. If you are trying to post something, for example, like 'You are an idiot' or 'Get a life' your post will not get through. At least, 90% of the time. So get your own life, idiot, and harass people somewhere else.
Why do I get that rude message when I use the <blink> tag, any <*script> tag, or a <meta> tag?
Because we already told you that we don't allow HTML tags.
Why do I sometimes get "ERROR: XX Minute Post Rule" error messages?
We have hard-coded some "Anti-Spam" features into the CGI scripts to prevent people from spamming the AbductionBoard. If you see the error message when posting or replying to a post, then simply hit the browser "Back" button, wait the given time and try again. It might be frustrating, but the Spam prevention code has been added to allow users to enjoy the freedom the original AbductionBoard gives, with the added security of the "Anti-Spam CGI code" to prevent abuse.
Why do I get an "Access Denied" Message when I try to post something?
Because either you, someone using the IP address you currently have, or someone from your class B or C IP block are/is probably a prankster or hacker, and you are currently banned indefinitely. If you think there is a mistake, then contact us, and we will consider your request for removing the ban.
Why hasn't anybody answered my questions?
Either we are backlogged with important issues or you asked some stupid questions. If your question is legitimate, not only will we answer it personally, but we will also add it to this list. Try a search engine first if you think your question just might be stupid.
Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a followup?
Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to follow up on a message to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document. Leave them there if you want people to know who is saying what.
Why didn't my report show up?
Yourreport most likely did not show up because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of cache. Please reload your browser and it should then appear.
