    I'm not sure it's the forum, I think its the verbiage used in the post.

    I've noticed certain brand names that used to be posted like any other word now result in a "Forbidden" page which informs you that you are not allowed to post in that forum, or even on this board.

    I believe the reason is that BB software is infected with an adware bug that turns such brand names into a hyperlink. This is probably a temporary patch around the bug until it can be eliminated from the software. If you use a descriptive or generic term for whatever you're attempting to post, it will be allowed.

    If you're having another problem, I'd contact an administrator directly.

    Eh, that's vBulletin for you. Makes sense. It works now, thanks!
