Hi there.

At the moment, if I connect to

Hi Fabrizio. Your blog does work at http://www.java.net/blogs/fabriziogiudici/ and the links on the site point to that URL. Can you tell me the link you clicked to access http://www.java.net/blog/fabriziogiudici/ or did you type that in the URL based on your blog entry?

I will be looking at this "access denied" issue for http://www.java.net/blog/fabriziogiudici to resolve it.

Hi Frank. I can't remember the link, it wasn't on my pages neither at Java.Net, I only recall I clicked on some site this morning. But for me it's not a problem - the important thing that there's a working link. I'm going to use some of my blog posts in a presentation in the next days.

So for me the problem is over. Thanks.

This seems to be an ongoing issue. From an email to Sonya from Martin Klähn grazertwo@gmail.com:

I was following (although undesired at the time - a click on the wrong part of the screen) the link to sonyabarry's blog on http://weblogs.java.net/blog/sonyabarry/archive/2012/09/24/javanet-javaone-2012 and i received a message telling me I'm forbidden to see this page. At that time I was not logged in to my account.

You don't have permission to access /blog/sonyabarry/ on this server.
Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at weblogs.java.net Port 80


When I try to access https://www.java.net//blog/sonyabarry/ from http://weblogs.java.net/blog/sonyabarry/archive/2012/09/24/javanet-javaone-2012 I get the same 403, either logged in or out.
