Please read before posting to this forum

   Some actual "General Feedback and Suggestions", for a change...

   The "Please read before posting to this forum" paragraph is now
longer and more detailed than before, but it's pretty clearly less than
100% effective.  I suspect that the longer and more detailed it gets,
the more people will see only "blah blah blah...", and ignore it.
Brevity and emphasis (color, font style, ...) might be attributes worth
employing.

   The Web address for the HP[non-E] forums looks nice, but it seems to
be neither an actual link nor even copy+paste-susceptible text, so, less
helpful than it might be.


    On an unrelated topic, when trying to reply to or start a topic, I
often get a spurious FilterErrorHandlerPage:

The link you clicked is requesting an operation that requires
authentication, but the authentication failed.

There are five main reasons why this may happen:
[...]

   A second try usually works.  (Note that that error page employs color
for its entire content, which may be excessive, but at least it's text,
so I could copy+paste some here.)

Re: Please read before posting to this forum

Hi Stephen, 

Point taken. I've tried to take the best ideas from some of the replies to posts people have made here, and inculcate them into the Description text, but as you say, people still post here regardless of the fact that it isn't helpful.

The Description text does not recognize HTML tags. The link to the HP Support Forums actually was set up as a live link for a long time, but since it did not function as one, I recently removed the tags. 

The Filter Handler Page error generally means that the program that checks your authentication before processing the event handler received an ambiguous response. I have seen this a few times myself, generally when I have been idle for quite some time, but have not quite reached the timeout. Most often, hitting the Back button and re-submitting the edit will clear the error. That's a platform-generated page, and it is quite colorful.
