403 forbidden. A number of us have been getting this message today when posting a reply,

or clicking on a link or, in one case, trying to go back a page. It is not consistent and constant, rather, intermittent.

Thanks.

5. I use separate browser for DU (Safari)

and I haven't been able to sign in to Du on Safari all day. ETA - getting that "403 forbidden" message.

Somehow I apparently left a DU session running on Chrome so I have been on there all day.

Be careful - if you log out you may not be able to get back in.

10. EarlG responded to another poster yesterday that they are having issues. Technical, not hacking.

Working on it.

13. I switched to 'upload.democraticunderground.com' when I was having connection issues.

It seemed to work much more consistently.

16. I just experienced it when trying to respond in the Lounge

Then I tried replying to a thread in Sports and it worked. So, yeah, intermittent for sure.

EDIT: And this post was obviously successful.

19. Apparently so. And there was a problem with the rec button and a couple of other things a couple

of days ago, although that got resolved fairly quickly.

20. I got one while voting during jury duty

It was disconcerting, but a tap on the browser's back button and moving forward again worked fine.

23. Clarification


I did the back button and then clicked my vote again to move forward.

Just wanted to clarify that I did not use the browser forward button.

25. I originally noted this as a mere annoyance, but this is happening far more frequently it seems now.

Earl G., Elad? Any ideas?

26. Yeah, it's been happening a lot today to me, and I've not posted that much.

It makes me uneasy.
