Hi I am not able to post my queries due to below reason , though the only abbreviations i am using is of the certification name and putting it inside [code=java][/code].
Can anyone tell how do i submit my query

Reason that gets displayed on submission of my post:-

We're sorry, but your post appears to contain abbreviations that we don't like people to use at the Ranch. Because JavaRanch is an international forum, many of our members are not native English speakers. For that reason, it's important that we all try to write clear, standard English, and avoid abbreviations and SMS shortcuts. See here for more of an explanation. Thanks for understanding.

If the abbreviation occurs within code, you can use code tags to post it successfully.

The specific error message is: "u" is a silly English abbreviation; use "you" instead.

Basically, the complaint is about the use of SMS shorthand. Javaranch doesn't like it when you use "U" instead of "you". Just correct it, and it should work.
