I am a home user and am taking a course in WordPress.  Two actions have been blocked by 406 Errors.  1) Adding a static post to a blog page and 2) publishing an application developed with Jetpack.  The result is 

Error 406 - Not Acceptable

Generally a 406 error is caused because a request has been blocked by Mod Security. If you believe that your request has been blocked by mistake please contact the web site owner.

Neither action should warrant security concerns.   Advice?
