I would try to send this as an error report, but it is not working, as far as I can tell. I just get another error.

Error 403: Area Forbidden

Whenever I use a link directly from another website, it give me this error, and doesnt let me post. I dont know what is going on...

It seems to be working now, but let me know if it crops up elsewhere.

This error (see a similar situation here) eventually wiped out the entire site because of the way I've coded it. It has to do with the Apache server module mod_security which scans form inputs to ensure they don't contain certain keywords that could be used for hacking. My host seems to be fiddling around with it these days, and has apparently made it way too restrictive. I've created an .htaccess file that circumvents the whole thing, which is probably not an ideal solution nor their intended result. I'll try removing the .htaccess work-around in a few days to see if they've settled on more reasonable settings.

Thanks for letting me know, even though I didn't do anything about it until it took down the whole site!
