The entire display of everything here is all screwed up, and I get a Forbidden message when I try to go the main page the Guns & Ammo.  :s

    That is probably your web browser settings...it may have updated and included a "child filter", cuz guns are bad for kids to view.

    The main page works for me. The main article on the site right now is "Behind the scenes on "Yellowstone" with Cole Hauser.

    Check the main page again. It may have been temporary maintenance on their end.
    If you're still getting the error, check your settings, firewall, security and filters.

    I haven't changed a thing here.  One day it worked, and the next it didn't...

    Even if you haven't changed anything, if you have automatic updates, that could have changed something for you. Check your security settings anyway.
    I know the website is up and running. The Yellowstone article, and article on the Trijicon MRO green dot and a Colt King Cobra revolver review are still there.

    From the looks of your screenshot. Your browser seems to be blocking the JavaScript that lays out the page. If your security settings are too high, your browser might be blocking or refusing to run those scripts that define the page layout. You may not have done anything but auto-update could have done it for you.
    Also check to make sure you're browser isn't in Text mode.
    A security setting of Medium is usually adequate for most pages.
    Set to High, you better know what you're doing.

    Worst case scenario, uninstall and reinstall the web browser. Or choose a different browser, there's plenty.

    Wow! I haven't used AOL since my 56K modem days.

    Actually, I think I had a 14.4 the first time I used AOL. By the time I was up to 56K, I ditched AOL. I had no idea they might still be around.

    I actually didn't know they were still around either - I dimly remember my 300 baud CompuServe days.

    AOL pretty much killed off CompuServe. They were just cheaper.
    CompuServe owned the 80's but AOL took off in the 90's.

    I was wondering what happened to them so I looked them up.
    Control Video Corporation (1983–85)
    Quantum Computer Services (1985–91)
    America Online (1991–2009)

    The parent company lineage:

    Independent
    (1983–2000, 2006–2015)
    (AOL) Time Warner
    (2000–2006)
    Verizon Media
    (2015–present)

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AOL

    I can see why there little logo shows up from time to time.

    My email is still an AOL account I’ve had since about 1992.  The no longer provide my internet, but they do provide my email.

    Some of my senior ranking = older, customers use AOL email.

    AOL was one of the first companies to master the art of ignoring the complaints of their customers, and still survive. It took me a couple of months, just to get my account cancelled. I finally just cancelled the credit card that I paid the bill with.

    Naw, they learned it from the Telcos.

    I've never been a phone guy, so I wouldn't have known that.
  • zorbazorba Senior Member Merrritt Island, FLPosts: 25,219 Senior Member
    You don't have to be - just dealing with Telcos can be a "challenge". "We don't care. We don't have to. We're the Phone Company."

    Same here. Wife and I have been AOL members from waaaaay back in the day. Have to use at least some of their "member benifits" to justify the cost. Even then, might not be worth it. I'm just too lazy to change email addresses. 

    Now that I think about it, we started out with Earthlink, then moved to AOL...don't remember why.
    At one time you weren't required to be an AOL member to use their email.  Not sure if that still applies, but it would be worth a look. 
    "Bipartisan" usually means that a bigger than normal deception is happening.
