    Unhappy 403 Forbidden on SEO chat


    I am getting frequently 403 Forbidden message on SEOchat. I have taken screen shot of one page.
    I am alone or some updates on SEO chat is going on. I am facing this problem from last 24 hours.


    I hope this is the right place to post this error.

    Things are working fine now, I was facing this issue from last 24 hours on every url, even from different locations. Above posted URL is just an example.

    Again it creating trouble, check the time from screen shot (location GMT+5.30 (India))
    It happens after the login, without login the site was running perfectly fine. After login I have to refresh the browser (F5 and ctrl+F5) multiple time to overcome this 403 error.

    I had the same thing a few hours ago (just after editing a post)...

    I couldn't access any part of seochat at all (including forum home page).

    It took about 5 minutes then I was able to get back in...

    I assumed it was some sort of maintenance/glitch!

    Hey gang,

    I got the same errors at home this weekend. It's nothing you guys are doing wrong. Tech is testing some new anti-ddos protection. I've asked them to fine tune things a little. Hopefully none of us should be seeing 403s anymore. But if you do, please let me know so that I can tell tech to fix it!

    Thanks!
