Thank you for trying to help me with this. I now understand that the site was “down” but does that explain how i was able to “join” with a new screen name?”
It’s really an interesting dilemma.
Whatever it was, it knows that you are here and blocked your access. I got in with a new screen name which whatever caused this DIDN'T RECOGNIZE.
That’s kind of strange IMHO.

I couldn't log into SS, TEG or BYH. So I went to BYC to see what's up and found out what was wrong. The servers security was upgraded and were so secure, that many people couldn't get on. Several people from BYC were also able to join the sites and some people were able to keep on posting with no problem.

Regarding the sites being down:

We were updating the security on the servers to keep the bad guys out, and unfortunately some legit peeps were blocked in the process.

It's a bit of a cat/mouse game with bad-actors on the internet. We try to stay a step ahead and keep them out while letting all the good peeps through... it's not always easy since the bad guys are always getting better and better at pretending to be good-guys.

We'll keep doing all we can to keep the sites accessible AND safe!
