    For some reason, it seems like I can make short posts, but anything longer than about a paragraph or so won't go through. The Internet I'm using here is kind of... delicate, for lack of a better word, but you'd think that would keep me from posting at all instead of just restricting it. Help?

I'm going to assume it's a problem on my end for now, but if it keeps being an issue after I get a better connection I'll open this back up again.

    Something about gremlins, I think. Well-known fact.
    (On the technological side of things, your guess is as good mine. Probably better, actually.)

    Possible the MTU set on your computer and your router disagree; short posts don't exceed the troublesome length, but a post longer than a certain amount makes for a TCP packet be large enough to cause problems.

    But that's really unlikely on a home computer and a home router in this day and age, so ...
