Hi Don,

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Yes, as I said in my previous post "I log into Ask".

Even though I am not a fan of forums, I have posted to Ask in the past
and I was able to get my question listed. I guess there is some kind
of pretend AI sniffing at Ask questions and coming up with false
positives. Although I find it impossible to see anything in my very
reasonable and rational question which would trigger this defect.

just used it myself, aside from "Tags" getting upset with me based
on what I was entering, it worked perfectly.

you do have to be logged in to use the feature.

Thanks for taking the time to reply Rob. Unfortunately my
experience of Ask is the total opposite of yours. I log into Ask
enter my question, add the details, tags, go through the "I'm not
a robot" reCAPTCHA and click the "Ask Your Question" button and
ZIP, nothing happens. Tried with 4 different browsers and 3 OS,
with same result.

I never had a problem with ask. I just get there the easy way
by clicking Help -> Get help online. Type you question (or
keyword) to find equivalent questions and answers, after that
click the orange button to ask the question.

Success, Rob.

Since I got no response to an earlier post to this list, I 
attempted to post in the Ask forum. Numerous attempts to
post failed. I guess a bug report in Bugzilla is now the only

I recall some murmurings about TDF seeking an alternative to
the Ask software. In my opinion, this should happen sooner
rather than later.
