Today's News is one of them.

I had to try 3 times before being able to make this too.

We have been getting that in the staff forums as well, but only in specific topics.  It appears to happen when a thread's topic has an apostrophe and also your post has one.  We're not sure why it just started happening this week.

We're talking about upgrading the forums, which the error message appears to suggest would resolve the issue, but I know that there's some testing required. 

In the meantime, sorry for the trouble - I'll adjust the thread names to remove the apostrophes, and that should take care of it.

As a data guy, I love that strip. :)

FYI, we're starting work to upgrade the forums to fix issues like this, and that temporarily resulted in the goofy header you see above. Should be gone by tonight.
