I have been receiving the Access Denied - Security Block for unlocked threads that I have previously posted on for 2 days now. Is this part of the new security? I'm not selling anything...

There are apparently some hard coded words in the forum software that can cause the issue.
 
Try posting just the word "Test" and see if you are blocked.  I've tried to post copied text and seen it happen occasionally.  I reword it and then its fine.

Thanks for the link. I actually did try "test" in a post and it was accepted. Then when I rewrote the post and it was denied. I have given up on that thread...

Happens to me on occasion.  Last time, the word "comes" turned out to be the culprit. Go figure...

I did a search as to why SMF (The Forum Software CR Uses) might do this and came up with a answer. 
 
It appears related to the host, and not the Forum Software.

Thanks - it seems to be happening more frequently, to completely innocuous posts.

word "comes" ... the culprit
Maybe the system is jealous as it is incapable of that function ;D

I have submitted the issue to my host.

I've seen it quite a few times and just ignore it as being a function of cookies not being correct for a given URL or time that I visit a URL. A reload or clearing of the browser cache usually fixes things up. So it may not be a problem that the host can do anything about... or at least not completely.
