Not sure if this will help anyone buy I asked Namecheap to disable mod_security and they suggested whitelisting whatever was triggering the rule. They fixed it within minutes and let me know what was triggering the rule. They let me know the following:

The software that posted the information converted some characters into hexadecimal representations, and while this was a POST request, the mod_security scanned it and found it suspicious.

Cheers,

Thanks for the information, however, this topic was last posted in seven years ago, relates to an outdated version of SMF, and is marked as solved.  As a result, it is being locked.  Please avoid reviving such old topics in future, especially if they have been marked as solved.
