    A technical glitch?

    I can't seem to reply to a post.
    This is the error message:
    "The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 1 characters."

    Or, if we're feeling particularly cagey, we may type a few random letters and color them white.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
