Eureka! Maybe just a localized-to-me thing, but when the hamster keeps not accepting my posts,

even after I have sanitized them – shut up – I just select about the bottom half of the post, right-click and cut, then submit what remains to The Hamster. Almost always is graciously accepted, and then I edit, paste the stuff I cut, and submit to Monsieur Hamster again, and that works too! Maybe the old programmer in me, I like to poke around and try to fix or get around things myself. We used to call that stuff whippies or tools – they worked, but were not submitted to the ISO and testing people, or documented. Bad programmers. Bad! But being onsite we needed to fix things quickly, not submit a request and have it prioritized and take weeks to wind its way through the red tape.
Gotta say I really appreciate that when the Hamster says nope, thumbs down, no explanation for YOU! – my post is still there, which is a great improvement over having the post just vanish. So I’m good.

I just tried pretty much the same thing. After my excerpt was being continually rejected, I posted an original comment, and then on edit, pasted in the excerpt. I did sanitize it, but I’m wondering if you even have to do that if you paste it on edit. Have to experiment some more.

They pretty much let me do what I want. You have to keep bringing them though. I forgot one time and asked the Chief Rodent if I could (just this one time) get a pass. His sweet reply was “Dream on, mother f*cker”
