errors while attempting to post

I've always had very mixed success posting to the forums; half the time, it just doesn't work (I get an error or the page appears to hang).

Today I managed to post several times successfully (over in the "Ideas for games" thread), but just now I tried to reply again, and it won't go.  I tried half a dozen times with two different browsers.  In Firefox, when I click the Save button, the page clears and then spins forever (and no post appears in the thread).  With Chrome, I get this:

error 500

Any ideas what's going on?  (Fingers crossed that I'll be able to post this message about being unable to post...)
