    I am wondering what one needs to do to gain higher access to be able to post in other topics.

    I tried posting into several topics and it replied that I was to wimpy to enter that general topic.

    Where exactly were you trying to post? Some areas require a higher post count before participation such as the Political threads and the Marketplace (100 posts total each, from memory). Check this out. :)

    Not a bad idea- spinach is supposed to be very good for you. :)

    some of the forums are also restricted. such as the iPod Gear and the news ones. those are stictly controlled by the site, thus no new threads can be created there either.
