    Yesterday I was writing a post and a bunch of pop-up warnings started showing up like every 5 seconds after typing. The warning said something wasn't accessible to this website. Then when I was finished I clicked post and it wouldn't for several times. So I gave up on my post and tried to return to the main page but couldn't. It would hang for a while and then IE said it couldn't find the site. I tried other browsers and the same thing. Any other site I went to was okay. It was only this site and only until now SDF shows up. I can see other people have been posting throughout the day it looks like.

    Nope...not here with me in Idaho either. But I have been busy the last week and have not been on that often either.

    I did. Had the exact same issue, while posting something those things popped up and couldn't access the site. I tried and tried and also tried on my cellular device, same thing happened.

    Take screenshot next time.

    Run anti-malware scan on your computers.

    I did a scan after it happened and found nothing.

    I'll do a screenshot if it happens again. I forgot to mention that the warning pop-up was displaying some sort of graphic error as if it were cut in halves laying on top of one another. That's why I could only read it saying something wasn't accessible.

    So this happened to me again on Saturday. This new website if it doesn't like the link you are posting it bans you for like 24 hrs.

    That is interesting because if I recall correctly my incident happened right after I posted a Forbes article.

    I haven't had a problem with this until just a minute ago. I was posting a article from aviationweek.com I print screened and exited the site, I didn't want to get banned or lose access for 24 hours, like has happened in the past. I don't know how to upload the picture.
