Purple Mooseage loop

Hi all,

I seem to be locked into a loop of frustration. Received an auto message that I have a Purple Mooseage regarding (I guess) a syntactic issue with my last post (how I embedded the quote I responded to).
Problem is that I can neither correct the post nor exit from the loop that just keeps saying I cannot proceed without replying to the Mooseage (impossible) or correcting the post. Any action just delivers me back to the same go-nowhere message.

Ideas how to fix that? Anyone?

Thanks

It looks like you fixed the post in question and you were able to post here.  Funny it's having a "must reply" as that shouldn't be possible with that kind of message.  Is it saying "must reply" or "must read"?

Can you tell us more about what this error looks like or a screenshot?

Can you post a link here to the message with the syntac issue? That might help me or someone else determine how best to help you. Gir bot does weird things sometimes.

I seem to have solved it, or rather the system did between the time I posted and went back to try again.

But here, cut and pasted, is the original Mooseage

Hi Erik van Lennep,

I am gir bot! A rather limited bot buried deep within the bowels of this forum software.  I come to life once in a while to help with interesting chores!

Today, I have been activated because bio-staff have classified a post you wrote as "Problem with quoted text".  

It appears that something is off about the quoting in your post: Either something seems mis-attributed, text is quoted without attribution, your comments are inside the intended quote, etc.

Text may be quoted like this:

Here is a tutorial on how to quote on Permies. If you still have problems, ask in the Tinkering With This Site forum.

I hope this helps!
