403? Answered

Hopefully it's a hiccup, but something appears to be broken.

I was trying to post a comment on Eric's Hallowe'en card topic, and the "timed out" message appeared behind the processing icon.

The page then switched to:
403 Forbidden
Request forbidden by administrative rules.
All my usual routes into the site (bookmarks, typing it in, history) gave the same message.

The "fault" only lasted a couple of minutes, but could it be symptomatic of something worse?



No, I haven't broken the internet again.

Something like this happens to me. No matter what I do, I can't reply to comments on threads, or instructables.
9I don't get a 403, just the reply button does nothing at all when I click it.)

I had this too. It only lasted for about 2 minutes. It was probably an update.
