Fixing Error 412 and Precondition failures in WordPress

Apparently mod_security is really aggressive around certain words (like in my previous post). To get around this, add SecFilterEngine off to your .htaccess file. You might not want to leave that snippet in there long, since it disables the security check, but if you find WordPress denying you the ability to post, it’s worth a shot.
