I had that problem when I took to long to post a reply so it may have just timed out.
I had started to type a reply to a post and got sidetracked by questions about a projoect. It toook me close to an hour to get back to the reply I was typing. When I hit the post button, I got the same sort of error message as you did.

OS is WIN7 IE 8 ACER desktop 18 months old. I click on the new post and start typing....slowly.....I was in my 30's before I started using a keyboard or type writer. Sorry that is all I can help you with.
I think this happens when I have held a post open for a long time while responding.
After losing many long winded responses I have gotten into the habit of writing the response in notepad or onenote and copy/pasting it in.
