OK, I've been having weird problems for the last 1/2 hour trying to post an answer to a database-related question on StackOverflow, and I keep getting this result (on Firefox 3.6)
The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
The problem seems to occur when I try to post some code with 'd--- table' in it, where 'd---' is replaced by the word drop.
I cannot post the following 3 lines, in either SO or this site, if they include the well-known SQL statements DROP.
stat.executeUpdate('d--- table if exists people;'); stat.executeUpdate('create table people (name, occupation);'); prep = conn.prepareStatement(... 'insert into people values (?, ?);');
'dro* table' 'drop ball' drop the table drop fable drop t*ble droptable
drop a table
The evil words for me are "drop" and "table"... how come you guys can post? :(
edit: Could someone please suggest another online site that is not stackoverflow that is a quick way to try out a POST request of a text field?
UPDATE: Never mind. I don't know what the answer is, but the same problem occurs on Google's website. So it's not stackoverflow. Now to go to my IT Dept...
