Tried to post earlier, got a 403 error. Couldn't even send a PM to the admin. See if this works.

Still hit or miss for me. Let's see if this goes through.

That went through but when I tried to edit a minute later, no luck.

Same here. The 403 error is apparently a result of an overly sensitive WAF (web application firewall), as this issue has been reported on other websites. If this message doesn't post, I'll try posting from a different IP address when I can, in case my IP address has been flagged as malicious.

I'm also sending an email to forumhelp@federalsoup.com, but don't expect whoever monitors that address can immediately correct the problem.

Interesting that my previous message in this thread posted first try, even though I can't post in a thread I started last week, using same computer & browser from same IP address! In my case, it's not hit-or-miss. I've tried like 10 times over the last several days to post a follow-up email in the thread I started.

Still trying to reply. Getting a Microsoft Azure error. Moving to the cloud?

EDIT: That took at least half an hour.
