    Since a couple days I'm not allowed to write any Posts in the thread: Navy operation frees U.S. ship captain, kills three pirates. I've tried a couple other threads and it only occurs in that one right now. Earlier I had the problem with a thread called "restrict internet" or something like that. I can't find it right now.

    Every time I try to post an answer I get this error:

    You don't have enough posts to post in the political forum.

    That thread is in the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum – and you need a minimum of 100 posts to post there.

    I'd guess that that post was made when the thread was in a forum you are allowed to post in, for example Community or Current Events. Once the conversation turned political the thread would have been moved to PRSI.

    Either you don't have enough time here and posts to participate, and can get the answer from the FAQs.

    Or you can simply think that.

    We don't like you, and stopping you from post in a thread or two every week would confuse you and drive you insane.

    Of course it isn't April 1st anymore, so likely that isn't it.

    Edit: would be nice if we could drive everyone insane who refused to self medicate with the forum FAQs

    You don't seem to be much into Computer Technology. Sometimes there are just errors in a software that appear and disappear.

    But thank you all for the answers.

    But when it involves the PRSI forum, it is usually PEBKAC.

    Yes, but its also worth reading the error message including the FAQ first ;).

    Thread was maybe moved to a forum you are not allowed to access.

    As others had guessed I will just clarify the situation

    That post was made 13th Apr 2009, 22:20 (my time).

    The thread as a whole was moved in the PRSI (Political, Religous, Social Issues forum) at 18:22, 14th Apr 2009.

    The PRSI forum has a post requirement of 100 posts in order to post in it.

    So after the thread was moved into that forum anyone who has less than 100 posts can not reply. This sometimes means that a poster who had previously posted in that thread can no longer reply (as in your case) which is unfortunate.
