Additionally, it's not generically mod_security that is the problem.
My host has mod_security active as well -- but they have it configured properly so that it does not conflict with valid scripts. I have never had an issue with SMF on my site and would not even know they had mod_security if I had not asked.

So, it is possible to have mod_security running with SMF - if the host knows how to configure it properly. The problem is that most hosts are idiots and just set everything to hat they THINK is "most secure" without taking into account the proper settings.
Which then leads to the issues you see and the need to just disable the while thing rather than figuring out the proper configuration
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
