403 "Forbidden" Errors

Recommended Posts

Some of us have recently started getting this error once in a while:

Access to this resource on the server is denied!

Like the "spam" 403 errors that we were getting a few years ago [here], these errors are triggered by something in your post, but in this case it's not necessarily a name or a word, it's some random-looking character string (which could be any part of what you've typed).

If you get one of these errors, please let the staff know by telling us (here in this thread) what thread you were posting in (or if it was a private message).  Or if you've gotten such an error recently, please tell us as much as you remember.  Thanks for your help!

Meanwhile, you should be able to get past the error by rewording your post.  If it's a long post, you can narrow down the problem area by attempting to post it one piece at a time.  Once you get the error, you'll know which part you need to reword.
