    Jim/Downshifter can't connect

    Hi Guys, can you help Jim. He emailed to say the following:

    hey guys I need help contacting support at BBO. It seems everytime I try to connect tot he site I get a message says "forbidden.. you don't have permission to access/ forum.php on this server."

    could someone contact support admin for BBO, and see if they can resolve this for me. It happens on all browsers I use. Must have to do with my IP...

    Jim.....

    I will message his email address to Tom and Derick since he can't connect here to see what to do. Or, I'll check back and can relay to him.

    Thanks!
    Gerry

    Did he, by some chance, some chance, add an entry to his hosts file to map BBO to a specific IP address?

    BBO moved to a completely different neighborhood recently, so the old "house" has new tenants....

    I wonder if he is in the Philippines again. I upped the security against foreign lands pretty significantly.

    Yeah, sigh, its a cost/benefit thing. People in the foreign lands like to spawn bots and spiders and hacks...so it's just easier to block them. I realize it will block people unintentionally, but it is what it is.
