If you have any queries about posting limits in any section, please post it in this thread. One of the editors or Webmasters will answer your query.
Update 12th February 2012: Posting limits is different from posting permissions. A posting permission is removed by an editor if you violate a rule, whereas a posting limit is something which is applicable to all members including editors. So, the 'restricted access' message means different things in different sections. For example, in the business directory, you will see it because the section itself is closed for posting. If you see it in the resources section, first check if 5 of your posts there are in pending/new submission section. In that case, you are restricted from posting till these are reviewed by the editors. If, on the other hand, you do not have any resource post in pending/new submission, it means that your posting permission was removed due to a violation of ISC rules.
