Can someone please explain this error message?

Did you try to copy and paste something from a different site? I've had it happen when trying to do that on the song lyrics thread.

Yeah, it morphed into something totally else without anyone actually answering the question.

Bottom line, forums sometimes have glitches and it's best to PM Jacob about it when it happens so he can look into it.

@siamese5555: Copy and paste the error message in a PM to JacobJ. He can tell you what it means.

A few times I've gotten it when I typed special characters.

Hope that helps!
