Posting new recipes seems to be broken

Posting new recipes to gives a 403 Forbidden, and seems to have done so for about a week. Is this intentional or an accident?

I'm sorry to post this here, but I couldn't work out how else to contact you. The URL for requesting help with the website gives a 404 Not Found, and I didn't think I should email sales.

recent post not in my "view my recent posts" list

I recently (around 6-7) posted to the forum but it doesn't show up in my (cellist) recent posts list. I realize that the forum is moderated and my post may have been rejected.

I also posted to the activeperl listserv and have not received anything from there either.

Can someone tell me the status of these posts?

Recent posts not visible

I recently (yesterday) posted an item to the ActivePerl discussion forum; now I can't find it, and it doesn't appear in my "View my recent posts".
Yesterday, the only place I could see it was in the "Recent posts" part of the forum.

Any ideas?

If you hover on "Description by Balazs Szabo"
you can see his email address.

It is way too easy for a spammer to register and harvest addresses.

As a forum user you expect that your email address will not be shown, and that if people can contact you it is by clicking a link that opens a form.
