Strange forum bug with "String could not be parsed as XML"

Today, when I post something on the Forum then I get a message:

Error: String could not be parsed as XML

and it appears not to post.

However it does post.

So if you get that message, check whether your post has posted or not before you repost it.

(Looks like this might be fixed now.)

heh… yeah, I posted the same message 4 times in one thread before I figured out that the messages were posting… I felt kind of stupid after I realized I’d not just duplicated a post, but quadruiplicated it. =)

@Simeon This seems to be back.

I have this message randomly, not always…

Every time I submit. Safari on iPad 3, iOS 6.1. The POST appears to hang. Refresh the page and it will show posted, but it is also still in the draft box. So check your top level for the presence of these drafts and go delete them.

Not quite every time. Every time if I had to log in upon tapping the “Write Comment” tab before I could start the comment.
