This is what I get when I try and send Usenet messages. For a while, it was a sometimes thing. Rebooting the program, or my computer, or both, seemed to help a time or two. Now it doesn't.

It will sometimes pretend to send a message, and then not really do it. (I will add that even before this problem came, for some time I have had to manually check every message I send on Usenet to see if it really went out or not, and re-send if it didn't. Every bloody time, and sometimes I'd send over and over and over before it took.)

I'm using a MacBook Pro running 10.7.4 (OSX). I use SeaMonkey for my newsgroups. My Usenet access comes from a block I bought from NewsgroupDirect. I checked, and I still have over 50GB of access remaining, and their help page says that everything is running just fine.

I feel like I've been through all this before, but can't remember what the hell made it finally stop before. Is this God's way of telling me to get the hell off of Usenet and do something with my life?
