Default Where do I place my Questions?

On Yahoo Answers, when a question is asked,
a suggested category pops up,
or the Asker can choose his own category.
I wish that here, y'all had something here like that,
then I wouldn't get chastised for putting it in a wrong section.
And it would be better answered in that area
then where I might think it should go.

Thank You.

Although it doesn't produce automatic recommendations, such a guide already exists.

I get the same. It seems to imply that the site lacks some certification; not that there is any evidence of a virus.

If either of you can get a screen capture, or write down the exact wording of the error message, perhaps this problem is worth mentioning in the Bug Reports forum.

Yes, your link worked fine for me. I hope others will give yours a try, and see if they experience troubles or it it works.

I placed my link by going to the webpage where that list by Joe Monahan is posted. I copied the URL from the address bar and then pasted it into my own post.

I think the problem was how you put it into the post. Did you use the insert link?

Hm.... now there is an interesting possibility. No, I did not use the insert link feature. Let me try that now and see how it goes.

I get under Technical Details:

forums.catholic.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
The certificate is only valid for sl02.forums.catholic.com

Take out the "s" in "https" at the start of the links, and it will work. Maybe there's something wrong with CAF's security certificate, but it doesn't matter. Just don't post your credit card number on the forums and you'll be fine.

Now that makes sense. Let's give it a go.

Although.... I am not sure why my other links at https, instead of http. When I copied and pasted the link this time, the s didn't appear. I hope that doesn't change.
