Access denied?

I'm trying to post a new thread and keep getting "Access Denied" when I try to post.

Sometimes the obstacles in our path ARE our path!

    With the information from the other thread:
    paste links as the plain text string (the forum editor will make it a string again).
    The same issue might surface when editing a message or quoting a message that included links. In these cases mark the lnk and click on the "broken chain" symbol to remove the "link attribute" (which will be restored subsequently - latest during posting the message.

    You would think that Microchip would at least provide a message or help topic about the reasons for getting this message and ways to (mostly) avoid it. Obviously they no longer have the expertise to actually fix this problem, or perhaps they just don't care, but new members almost always eventually encounter this annoyance. It's been, what, seven years since fixing this was their "top priority"?

    There's the second problem that it has been established that you're immune to the firewall if you are connected via Microchip's corporate network.
    So, any big wig who hears rumors of unrest probably pops in, tries it themself, and concludes that we're all imagining it.

    As I recall a new member gets the basic rules when he signs up, though he may not read/comprehend each and every word.
    If you responded to each failure to post the bad guys would soon figure out the limits and avoid them.
    I think they have the expertise to fix the problem but the "firewall" at the front end is run by corporate IT who is only concerned with network safety and stopping the spammers so they do not clog things up, not the forum.
    In all the large organizations I worked at corporate IT were in a world by themselves.

    Yes, but I'm not sure what your point is.
    The "Basic rules" have nothing to do with what triggers the firewall.
    That was a particularly ham-fisted attempt to block one particular spammer who was posting hundreds of messages selling Apple products many years ago.

    Indeed, the occasional feedback I have got from people "on the inside", is that the web server is run by a seperate group who answer only to themselves.

    Reminds me of a story from a Model railroading list i frequent ...
    Coming up to April fools day one year a bunch in an open plan office set up some track along a window ledge in the office. On Apr 1st they sent out an email about this new mail delivery system they had. People would wander in to see it and they woul drun a loco and wagon back and forth, putting paper messages in the wagon. Some of the upper management also appeared and everyone admitted to being taken in by the April fools joke.
     
    Three days later an email was circulated by the IT department (who hadn't appeared on Apr 1st) to say that "it is against company policy for new systems to be installed without approval from IT" ...
     

    Do not use my alias in your message body when replying, your message will disappear ...

    Maybe Microchip should transfer the forum to the portal they are now using for support tickets:
     
    https://microchipsupport.force.com/s/
     
    Looks like it may happen. There are links on the website above, but links just redirect here:

    Don't expect too much. Might just be a forwarder from microchipsupport... to the existing forums.
