The forums do indeed have problems. We had a major downgrade (They called it an upgrade, or migration, or adjustment, or whatever, but posts from years ago are showing up as new.) a few months ago and problems are still lingering.
Don't sweat it, just hang in there.
This site had a problem posting the first one saying there was some kind of problem so I tried a secong time and that got through.I didn't know the first one got through.Sorry
