Error 403 when trying to post in forum

I can’t post replies in the forum, in Brave browser I get the message “403 error” and in Firefox I get “403 forbidden”.

I don’t know if it’s relevant but I use a VPN since I’m in China.

The problem seems to come and go, a couple of days ago I get the error but was able to post eventually. Today I’ve tried to post a reply several times but have not been able to

Let’s see if I can reply here

Yep, that seems to work, but i still can’t post here: Jammming - after authentication, search is not working - #5 by script0526291217

I’ve had the problem in other posts too.

This happened to me with one topic, too. I don’t use a VPN and I am not located in China. Curious what might be the reason for this.

I have had it happen when I tried replying to a couple of threads. I don’t use a VPN either. I may have been drafting a reply and then left the thread. After hibernating & returning and trying to post the draft and/or a fresh post, it gave me the 403 forbidden error. Waiting or restarting the browser didn’t help. The threads weren’t private, but for some reason, it locked me out from those threads.

Same problem for me. I am trying to post to the forum but I’m getting a 403 error.
