Why doesn't posting messages on this forum work with Netscape 4.x

I am using telnet to post this message, since using Netscape does not work.
When posting a message using Netscape, I get a page that says stuff like:

I could post your message as a:
and then there's a list of options.
If I choose one of these options, a blank message gets posted.

I think the problem lies in the fact that when clicking on NEW, my message is not put in the location bar, meaning that my message is being submitted via POST, instead of GET, like it used to for me.

Any thoughts?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
