A member's post on another site has the structure:
This a post I put on [site] and [member] suggested I posted here too. (emphasis mine)
It appears that being reported speech, post is required to be in the past tense. However, the verb does not relate to action by the person being reported, rather the one reporting himself here. (Do we still need to use past tense?)
I find the sentence not as clear as it would have been with a simple present (wrong, perhaps):
This a post I put on [site] and [member] suggested (that) I post (it) here too.
Which would be preferable? Is the original grammatically correct and I am uncomfortable only because of being unfamiliar with the structure?
Is the above alternative allowed?
