[resolved] Saving particular page content causes error 500 (3 posts)

    Hi, I'm getting an error 500 when trying to save a page with a particular text content. I don't know what is special about this content, but I've posted in in pastebin here:
    To see the problem, just add a new page from wp admin give it a title (Test, for example) and then paste the text from the pastebin page into the edit box and try to publish the page.
    I've minimized my setup to just using a brand new installation of WP 3.2.1 with either the 2010 or 2011 theme with all settings at default and no plugins. I've played around with this text and found that I can delete the last paragraph and it works fine. Can someone try to reproduce this problem on their system and find out the root cause?

    Forgot to mention that I'm pasting the text from pastebin into the post edit window in html mode.

    I found the solution to this problem. It was a Mod Security issue. My server support team was able to add some new "whitelist" rules to eliminate the error 500.
