No weird formatting, not particularly long. 4 tags

It is a question that is similar to many other ones on Stack Overflow (SSIS package only intermittently writing to Excel destination, despite always claiming success), but I have reviewed all the other posts, and my question is distinct.

I seem to have reputation points... why else would this get blocked?

    Chances are, you have some local web filter / proxy / whatever that hates SQL and silently kills the attempt to post before it ever hits our server. Not kidding. Check out the "related" sidebar... – Shog9 Mar 31 '17 at 23:28
  • Hm. I ask SQL Server questions on SO pretty frequently from this computer, but I suppose corporate policy could have change. I'll try masking the SQL. – Quicksilver Mar 31 '17 at 23:39
  • That was it! I added underscores to all the SQL terms, and the question posted. Thanks very much! – Quicksilver Apr 1 '17 at 0:51
  • @Shog9 Shouldn't that be prevented by the fact that Stack Overflow is using HTTPS now? – Konrad Rudolph Apr 1 '17 at 8:45

    @KonradRudolph some corporate web filters transparently MITM https sessions, their CA is installed on all clients and they create certs on the fly :-( Don't know whether this is the case but... it's actually possible. – Sklivvz Apr 1 '17 at 8:52

    @Sklivvz “security”. – Konrad Rudolph Apr 1 '17 at 8:59
