Hi, I'm running XP home, factory installed, I'm
firewalled, just ran adaware 6.0 and spybot,
I don't have a virus/trojan running amok,
and am not networked to other computers.

Twice now, I've made a post on a forum that
uses PhP code and I type a short reply in
the post reply box, hit enter and my post
immediately "takes" but it is not what I
wrote at all!! Twice now it's done it,
and what is written does correlate to
the subject matter, the forum owner
checked the logs and code and has found
no "glitches".

I'm on a laptop if that helps, this is really
freaky because like I said what appears
to have been written by me, isn't my words
and always pertains to the subject matter.
This forum you can be logged in or not logged
in to post. The first time it happened, I was
logged in under my user name, and tonight
the 2nd. time, I was posting as a "guest".

LOL, no I don't drink or do drugs either.

Thank you for helping me solve this mystery,
I took screen shots of the website forum
when I saw my words came out not as I posted them.


Sincerely, laptop :eek:

From the replies, you can see why I hestitated
to post this question. Bootsy, nope, perfect
health here. sdibias, don't believe in ghosts.

I've sent this post question to some techs I know
in silicon valley, be nice here people, LOL
if his happened to you, you wouldn't be laughing.

Any* logical * answer or part of an answer
would be nice.

Thanks again

Ms. laptop

Is that on one certain forum? maybe they have some weird filters on , happened to me once (still hold that against you xsiv :p).

also HTML , PHP and Cookies can be nasty at times, delete all your history and cookies (manually) and see if it still happens.

Hi Benny, thank you for your reply. Yes it only
has happened on this one forum. I delete my
cookies , history and temp internet files a few
times a day, and it still happened. I did fail last
night when it happened again to go to
the command prompt and run 'netstat'
to see if I could find anything, because
I was so flabbergasted when I saw how
the post reply came out.

I didn't know filters could do that, I've only
seen them on forums that have certain
swear words "filtered", though I didn't
swear in these posts, and this forum
lets you say any word with out a swear filter.

I posted this question when it happened the
first time on a PHP computer help forum, but
the owner there didn't have a clue.

Thanks again for your nice reply, LOL this has
got me real curious.

Sincerely, Ms. laptop

Filters can do freaky stuff, once a filter made me curse someone (another member of that forum) when i was just using a curse word as a part of a sentence, you better double check if someones having some fun on your expense :p .

the only other thing i can think of, is that you get a software firewall (if you don't already have one) , and see exactly what ports are open while you post there and who (what) is using them, you can find some weird addresses on the logs at times.

hope you work it all out, worst case scenario , learn to enjoy the new "schizophrenic" you :p .

I WAS ON A FORUM. YOU POST AND THE MODERATER screen's every post before it is put on the forum. they shorten the subject title, even though it no longer is descriptive. it was mesomorph.net. the admin and mod's don't consult each other on everything they do.

Thanks everyone, I learn so much reading this forum.

I just left a post at that forum where this is
happening and 3 other members are all mad
because it is happening to them too. Whew....
LOL, glad to know it's just not me.

The owner
is saying it isn't her doing it and it's not her code.
The post replies post instantly in a nano-second,
so there's no time delays from clicking enter post
to when it appears on a thread.

I checked all my ports, I'm locked down real good,
so far what has been said isn't anything damaging.

Thanks again for all your kind replies.

Sincerly, Ms. laptop

all somebodys gotta do is get in your ms word file and choose autocorrect. they can change any word to be something else.(example)everytime you type "it" it will come up "and" and so forth. hope i helped.
