Just wanted to say thanks for fixing the User Agent issue for my browser. I really missed this place!!
FYI - I dont know if I was the only one who was affected by your change. I could still get to the Home page fine, just not the forums. Maybe you could post a "INFO" link there and help others get back on the forums.
When did that start happening, and before today, when was the last time you tried and couldn't access it? Trying to figure out what would cause that.
You're welcome El Toro, sorry about the inconvenience. I sent out an email to all the members who allow admin emails from the forum. Another good reason for everyone to check their forum settings and allow emails from the admin here. We don't spam you we just send out alerts for the forum when needed and a monthly update newsletter.
Mike, his user agent was on the blocked bot list. I removed his user agent from the list.
If anyone else is having trouble accessing the forum please let us know. This new bot blocking we are using to stop the spam and scraper bots may need some more tweaks so it doesn't block legit users.
