For the lat two days I have had an "Access Forbidden" message when I tried to open WS. At first I wondered if I had been banned (!) but then I heard that other members were getting the same message. I got in here by going to my History and clicking on a thread I opened up previously. That got me in and I can navigate successfully once in. However, I suspect that others might be out in the cold thinking the site is down or has closed because of the recent squabbles.
