    Access denied to lounge threads

    I am a paid subscriber to Windows Secrets Newsletter. This week (and for a month now, regarding access to the Windows Secrets domain in general) I have been experiencing access and permissions issues.

    I can view the paid content when logged in at the Newsletter Page at the Windows Secrets web site. But the Windows Secrets Lounge pops up a message about not having permission to view a page when I try to access the feedback threads for this week's Windows Secrets newsletter paid content articles.

    This is on top of not being able to get into the Windows Secrets domain for several hours each day for the past month.

    I can access feedback threads for paid content articles from previous weeks, and I can post.

    What's going on here?

    Bob,

    I've been experiencing the same problem with the Lounge not being available and Timing Out!

    Hi Bob,

    The WS Columns feedback threads were moved to their home in the WS Columns Forum a little over thirty to forty minutes ago. For some reason, the WS Newsletter Columns administration did not get them moved until then. Are you having issues accessing them now?

    Good to know things are getting normalized. Yesterday was quite an unusual day.

    And thank you for the heads up on the gigabit copper cable length thread that should have been in yesterday's Best Hardware column thread. I moved Ed's post and your post, but edited your post to link it via quote to Ed's post.

    Ed's post is not showing up separately in that thread, is it? Nevermind, it showed up earlier in the thread, due to the post date in this area of The Lounge. Strange things, time-date stamps...
