What is your link? Also you can post the error? that would be helpful.

We just deployed a significant security platform to protect our infrastructure and significantly reduce bots and scammers. We are blocking China, Russia, and other foreign countries that have no legitimate reason to be on Bowsite.

There’s some fallout but it’s operating very well overall.

I got booted out the 2nd day of my semi live hunt last week because it said I wasn't in the correct time zone for my log on. There was no way to update it. It came back online when I got back to KS.

I can not post a picture (screenshot) of error I get when trying to reply to PM or posting a picture. But it is a Error 1020. I found that out when trying to post a screen shot of error I got on the PM. It is both from cell and desktop.

Sadly, yes. Although I'm expecting an email from Hunter Biden asking me to lift the restrictions any day now.

How do you know how to ban Hunter Biden since he can’t keep up with his laptop and probably has a new one each time he wants to log on.

Weird. I found it on my phone, but my work computer said "error"

Happened to me too, in fact I started a thread about it. I could get in on my phone, but not my ipad. I finally just deleted it off my page and went to bowsite.com and got in. All is well now.

Was happening to me earlier in the week too. I would see bowsite.com but not the forum page
