I have not been able to access my clipshare site on my touchpad and I am wondering if anyone here has had the same problem with any of their devices?

I have tried another clipshare site and it has not worked. The only clipshare site I was able to load is <spam>. Is there a solution that I could try or is this a WebOS issue? Thanks!

It may in fact be a real issue.
I'm seeing nearly identical posts on another website (which is against TNS policy).  However, in that case, the original poster suggested that he had solved the problem with an OS upgrade.

UPDATE: Just incase anyone was wondering...WEB OS sucks, I just downloaded the new Droid Icecream Sandwich software and Flash, now my clipshare site works on my HP touchpad!

I've had a lot of problems that my home router doesn't seem to like certain websites.  Earlier I was having problems with youtube, bit it seems better now.  I haven't tracked down the issues completely.  Some suggestions were perhaps a block size incompatibility issue.

I know there was an earlier discussion about Apple choosing not to support Adobe Flash on their IPADS.  Perhaps the HP embedded device issues are related.

Anyway, I'm not surprised there could be compatibility issues with embedded devices.

It is spam, and "Riki" (if he is not a bot) is having a long vacation.

But rikiusa has/had a spam link on their profile I think I called this one correctly.

They have copied the post on the other website verbatim, so it looks exactly like a legitimate question.

Perhaps it is better than plagiarizing TNS, especially when the person grabs data from a relatively recent topic, or topic that is very specific to the Original Poster...  like plagiarizing a sheepy topic.  I find it surprising that the spammers can't be bothered with coming up with something new on their own, or at least paraphrasing the idea.

Another clue might be that RikiUSA's IP address is nowhere near the USA.

Ok, so this is very strange. I actually posted this topic in the clipshare forum... just google rmorano123 and clipshare and you will see the original. Why would someone copy my topic? It is very strange... anyway- I ended up installing the new ice cream sandwich software for droid on my touchpad. Then, I installed flash. Now my site works fine.  Funny, how I came across my own topic while searching a completely unrelated situation. I googled [ how to embed mp3 on your website] and this post came up. I recognized it right away and saw this thread. ....small world.

Hi there Rmorano

The original poster here was probably a bot of some kind.  They take posts from one site and copy to another with added spam - that fact that your original post on clipshare was written by a human means it is more difficult for the spam traps to spot
