Not Authorized to post

Searched on site and Google for solution.  When I try and send a private message I get 'Not Authorized to Post' Error message.  I have tried different browsers, Cleared my cache, disabled addons, done it all with no luck.  I am out of ideas to try and seen where people who pose here are able to shortly after a dev sees it.  Hopefully I have same luck. thanks
Did you get it to work? I'm having the same issue.

Hello Rob, Apologies for any inconvenience.  You should be able to correct this issue by first posting or replying to a post in a public forum (not a game forum) and checking the Captcha which appears to the right of your text box.   Let us know if you're still having difficulty after trying this solution.

I had the exact same issue a few nights ago. The Captcha did nothing about the PM issue. It just took time to clear.
I'm having the same issue after following all the steps listed above.

Well, what have I got to lose. Here's a post dedicated to the Capcha gods. Hope that after I've made it I will be able to send PMs. Update: The Capcha gods are merciful. :))
Let’s see if this works.
