I use Chrome too so that appears to be a dead end.

Well... could be, but dont forget that it is not such a surprise we all use Chrome. It is by far the most used browser, so it could easily be just a coincidence.

I don't use Chrome but do have Chromium installed here on Linux and will give it a try to see what happens.

Hi Stuart, it's not overly often that it happens, but then when it dies it can be multiple times in a row. 
Maybe it's cause we are using Chrome in multiple machines and the forum add on cookie thinks that we are trying to spam cause it's coming from multiple machines, I really don't know, sometimes I have to give up or if it's really important, use another machine...

When it happens what have you been doing before? I wonder if it could be that more than a certain number of write actions to the forum in a certain amount of time could trigger this as some kind of spam prevention measure? I rarely if ever write a PM after doing any kind of update to the forum.

Anything and nothing  to be honest, normally I have just opened a new tab, open ww, then got to section and create post, or, I could be on the phone like now, opened ww, from the email notification and replying to you and bang, won't let me reply, it's very random...

Just catching up on emails. I had a bit of a backlog that I needed to clear...180,000 spam messages deleted and about 10,000 of my own messages to download into my own mail client.

I think this error might be a caching /PHP session ssue. Bad Behaviour looks for events happening that shouldn't normally happen. It seems to be finding the PM HTTP POST message coming more than two days after the HTTP GET command that initiated the PM. If a GET message has been cached from a previous PM a week ago and then you send a new PM using that page, it looks like you're trying to send PM today that you initiated a week ago.

That could be down to caching or possibly different session IDs if you log in on multiple devices.

As a trial, is anyone able to turn off client side caching to see if they still get the problem. Alternatively, does anyone who only ever uses the forum on a single device see the error?

I check the forum from 3 or 4 PC's, but almost exclusively post/PM from my laptop. I've never seen the error.

I nearly always post from two devices, my WD laptop (W7) or this desktop (Linux) and exclusively using Firefox on both and never seen this problem. I do occasionally clear the FF cache but probably only two or three times a year and usually in response to an error somewhere (but never this problem).
