When I try to access the JBF on my computer, the page only loads with GO
AWAY! in black letters at the top left on any otherwise white screen. Same
result either in Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.
But on my phone I
can access the site, as Im doing now.
Anybody else
confronted with this?

Weird. I still have issues with posting on my phone, but not on my desktop or laptop computers, and never received such a message in any event.

Something has changed... I usually browse the site freely on iPhone
and iPad, but now it suddenly says I dont have necessary permissions
for some of the forum.

Something bizarre is going on. When I try to access the JBF via my home wifi (which is Optimum), I get that "GO AWAY!" error page.

But using my mobile jetpack right now, I can access the JBF.

What in the world...?!

The site occasionally hangs rather than loads on my PC. On my tablet, pages often load incompletely so that each post just looks black. And had an issue yesterday with the site unavailable. But never had a message telling me to go away!

There's definitely something wonky going on... I can't view every forum from my laptop or iPhone, unless I sign in... access is denied to more than a few Forums (Movies, TV, etc.).  And when I do sign-in, it still needs a few moments to work out some kinks... if I go straight to the Movies forum, it's access "not permitted," but if I try to go through some Movie topics through the Active Topics feature, I get in with no problem.

Like I said:  Wonky!
