As a Palo Alto Customer,

Please open a support case for this.

Is there a reason a posting in this forum is no longer accepted to report a false positive, with all the requested information in the "sticky" detailing what to include?

As a Palo Alto customer you are entitled to support, here we only look at requests and flip the verdict if or when necessary. 
As Palo Alto customer we can look into why you are getting possible false positives and into other means of fixing the issue.
This has never been the method for Palo Alto Customers to report false positives.
This is the method for those that are not our customers and have no other means of reporting a malicious verdict. 

Understood, and thank you for the clarification.
