Re: XC32 - VERY LONG Compile time
Many years ago a spammer flooded this board with hundreds of posts each day selling Apple products.
Rather than using the built in forum filters, some ham-fisted web admin type installed various product names into a low level web server firewall. If it gets a match on certain words in your post, it blocks some low level database actions.
So, the forum accepts your post, but it gets discarded at a much lower level.
No-one at Microchip is authorised (or knows how) to modify the web server to remove this "feature".
Unfortunately, Allan's username contains "i p o d". That is one of the product names in the firewall. If you quote him in a post, his full username is placed in the quote tag. If you don't insert something between the letters to "break" the sequence of i p o d, you trigger the firewall, and your post appears to vanish.
To get a useful answer, always state which PIC you are using!
