Microsoft Q&A uses a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to block malicious requests.

When posting, you might receive an error message as illustrated below if the content you are posting contains restricted words such as system file references and URL injection type strings.

We are looking on a long term solution to avoid this error, as well as on an autosave/draft feature that will prevent users to lose their content when encountering this or any other platform error.

In the meantime, to verify if your content might get blocked due to certain keywords, before posting make sure you are able to “preview” your post without issues. If not, please modify your content to remove any system references and try to preview again. Once preview works, then you will be able to successfully submit your post.


We posted a sticky question about this issue. Always try to use "Preview" whenever you have code in your post before you submit it.

We are working on an autosave/draft feature that should fix the issue of people losing their content when getting this or another error.
