For those running into 403 messages, please note the URL you were trying to reach and the date and time with time zone. I'll check the various logs and see if anything shows up. You can post them here or in PM. You can also hit me up on Facebook if you've friended me (I may answer), or on Hangouts at jfrates@gmail.com (I probably will answer, unless I'm asleep).
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

Just hit a 403 with this link 2020/12/11 ~18:40 GMT. I don't get them especially often though.

And a bunch more a few minutes later.

And one where the page eventually loaded but all the CSS/JavaScript was 403.
Is is possibly some kind of rate limiting thing set on too low of a threshold? I was doing my usual thing of opening the unread posts page then opening new tabs for each thread in succession. The difference being that with the higher than average new post count compared to the last few years the amount of requests was maybe enough to trip the detection?

By the way, the error page:

Code: Select all

I got this too, on the "When did you join RLC" thread. Just that one.
When all is said and done, more is generally said than is done.
Ask me anything - no, really - but be warned: I will answer. If you didn't want to know... don't ask.

I still can't pin down what's going on here. I did update the PHP-FPM engine, so maybe there's an accidental fix there. Still tracking this, though.
