It looks like l need to start kicking the server folks around after all.
Xrys, the reason you could not post was that when our server went FUBAR last night, the magicslashes function got turned off somehow. In non-geek speak, that means if you use an apostrophe or a quotation mark in a news post, it breaks. I gotta pester the server guys to fix that ASAP.
In the mean time, everybody check this out.
