in thread May be OT: Can ad blockers truncate POST data?

The problem with MTU size that you had is not likely what is causing the OP's problem. He adds an extra dummy field to get trucated instead of the timestamp. Since this seems to work, then the actual size doesn't seem to matter. The end still gets scraped off. Anne

    The OP never said he actually observed that the padding is, in fact, truncated. Maybe you know more about networking than me: Is it not possible the padding pushes a packet over the local (Windows/router) MTU and the packet is then broken at a halfway point resulting in two pieces well under the local MTU and under the ISP MTU as well? -RT
      Good point, ryantate. I assumed, perhaps wrongly, that the new form was truncated as well. If the new document is NOT truncated, then, mismatched MTU size would be a possible place to try and eliminate the problem.
