there is definitely a bug in the forum if it thinks I'm trying to post a link, image, or video in a reply. so after wasting 15 minutes typing a post to add something useful to a discussion, I can't even post it. (after taking the time to register too) thanks MMOC.

Are you posting something with an "@" sign? Sometimes it interprets that as posting an email address, even if there's no email (e.g., "i7 @ 3ghz").
If there's no URL, picture, or email, and it's not what I've mentioned above, PM me the original post so we can figure out what's going on (although you'll probably have to post 10 times -- not spam, please -- before you can PM it, unfortunately).
there's a "at" sign in it (I can't even post this with it), yeah... I guess that's it. and I still can't post it after 3 posts. a "few" is 3, not 10. what gives?

why does it interpret any "at" signs as an email address even if there's spaces BEFORE and AFTER it?

well, either way... I got it to post now without the "at" sign, but I still think that is retarded and should be fixed. if there's an "at" sign anywhere in the post even with giant whitespaces and pagraphs around it, it still thinks it's an email address?
The "@" problem is a known issue due to a 3rd party vBulletin plugin. Yes, it's poor parsing to assume that it's an email even though there are spaces around it, and it's something we'd like to fix. Since it only affects those under 10 posts and it's not the most common character, it's a relatively minor issue and not top on the priority list.
The limit is 10 posts; no point in arguing over semantics. Feel free to post around to reach that minimum, but please don't spam.
