New messages cannot be posted to the "New to the B&N Community" or "Announcements" forums (BN.com moderators are only allowed to create posts there).
You should be able to post in any of the other forums though. Which forums are you having trouble with?

also, the occasional thread goes so far off the rails into name-calling and general peevishness that the moderators lock it or delete it. If there's wheat amongst the chaff, they're likely to leave it posted but locked.

If the group you were looking at is one that has been "archived" no new posts (either new threads or replies) may be written.
Blogs and certain groups like Literature by Women restrict the posting of new threads to moderators or guest hosts/writers. Any member may post replies to existing threads as long as the thread remains unlocked (a little lock symbol appears next to the index post)
The Announcements thread is restricted to posts by moderators and admins only.
I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.
