Explanation: Thanks Armap and GemWolf!
Please note that I didn't identify ATS as the problem at all!
I semantically explicitly expressed "So am I
being Censored somehow
by not being able to utilize the Alt. Breaking News forum to bring
important information to the attention of my fellow ATS members?
It was a question...not a statement OK!
And yes, I also expressed my feelings that I was being censored but as I had not identified any culprit as of then or now I don't see how that
construes me as feather and tarring ATS as being nasty ect. althoughI was a bit perturbed that it took several hrs [I had slept and woken] and still
no mod had replied to my question as of that time... but I did thank groomlake9 for their input as soon as I got on and refreshed this thread!
Now to answer Gemwolfs very petinent questions...
I have been using the same hardware and software and in the same configuration since before Christmas 2009
I use XP pro with service pack3!
I use IE8 and its up 2 date!
My security settings have not changed at all and yes they are also up to date!
I note that the last time I was able to post a BAN thread was early in January of this year  specifically on the 07/01/10
Then 8 days later on the 15th was the 1st time I ever had any trouble really posting a thread to ATS and it just happened to be a BAN thread and
exactly the same thing happened back then as is now...i.e.. I put in all the links and data and my opinion ect and hit the grey submit
button...browser takes me to a blank white page and thats it... I refresh the recent threads page and nada... no thread was posted.
I tried it several times and finally compensated by posting it in another forum and it all worked out fine..until last nite when I tried again..and
again..and again..and then posted the issue here as it was no longer a case of just happenstance but a big coincidence...Winston Churchill says 3
times and I'm being attacked. I don't want to be attacked or have to attack back and so I'm here to discuss this peacefully and resolve it without
any ill will or hard feelings OK!
I am fully aware that it could be at my end and I will check with my network admin that they havent altered anything that might have caused this and
if it becomes apparent that I'm at fault for whatever reason then I will publicly post that here for all to see OK!
If it becomes apparent that neither ATS or I are at fault then I will surely have a valid right to my paranoia about being REALLY censored!
But if the issue does reside with the ATS side then I would request that it be fixed by making it a high priority OK! I would be very gratefull if
that is the case
Personal Disclosure: LET ME PLEASE BE CLEAR ABOUT THIS OK... I have yet to identify any malicious intent by ATS or its staff in the entire time of my
membership here and I don't think that there is any of that going on currently or even with this issue specifically!
I unreservedly apologize if anything I have posted has insinuated that in any way OK!
Do you have any recommendations as to actions I can undertake at my end to possibly resolve this?
[i.e. Log out and back in maybe... I havent
logged of ATS for ages now...last time was probably before 2010 arrived!
