Angry Trouble creating a new thread

This is my first posting to this forum and I had a totally different matter that I had intended to write about, and i will do os for my next post, but I feel this issue is perhaps more important,

I registered as a new member, and looked through several different postings to get a feel for things. Most importantly, I did not log out. Throughout this time I could see my user name, so I was confident that all was well. I pressed the button to create a new thread, and the message window opened up, just like it has now. I then spent almost 20 minutes composing my request for assistance, checked that I could not find any similar threads, and ran the spell checker which found a couple of errors.

Then I pressed the button to submit the thread, and..........

I was taken to a window that said that I could not post my thread because (a) I was not logged in, (b) I was not authorised, or (c) the administrator had removed my uathorisation. Since I had only just registered tonight, and I know that had not broken any rules, and I was signed on, I could not see how any of these three could apply. I am left with a foutyh option that was not stated, perhaps the site uatomatically logs you out adter a certain period of time - I mention thas only as another option, I have no idea whether or not this actually happens. Any way, as the forementioned window also had the facility to sign back in, I did so, expecting that my previous message would be intact and ready for my to resubmit.

Alas, no such luck. I was returned to a blank message box, and now I will have to rewrite my plea for assistance.

Is this a common occurrence, or is this just a trick you guys play on us noobs. If so, please don't do it to anyone else, it is not much fun. Most likley this is just a one of there any way to make sure it does not happen again. Did I do something wrong? Coming, as I do, from the antipodes was my message received upside-down and therefore rejected instead of being acepted? I fear I willnever know.
