Sun Oct 16 11:36:12 PDT 2016 I was trying to post a new question into Software Recommendations:
No indication at all was given as to what the error was.
If this was a case of "the site went down" or something of that nature, then that should be what was stated. At this point, I am stuck and have to manually save off my text I was going to post for later to try again.
EDIT #1: I got the same error again when trying to post to Software Recommendations Meta. This time I got an error saying it looks like a duplicate.
