Hi Glenn.
Yesterday I got the dreaded "Fatal error: Uncaught PDOException:"  when I tried to post a reply.
It got me thinking and I just did a test posting a reply to your "just a test" thread.
The error was the same and caused by posting a zero byte in the text.

When you do a copy from Windows10 calculator, the copied text has leading and trailing zero bytes.
I have had issues with this before in other programs but forgot when I posted yesterday.

I am pretty certain that it's the zero bytes that the forum doesn't like.
I will try and remember to not copy-paste from calculator in future.

Perhaps Poppy is including non-ASCII text with zero bytes as well.
