Several readers have been unable to post in the Forum due to a DA issue. I apologize for this issue. My technical team is actively working on a fix.

Update 4:43pm 7/26/22: My technical team informed me that the fix has been made. If you see any more Cloudflare block messages in future forum postings, please let me know by emailing me (ken at depositaccounts.com).

Thanks for your help!

Thank you, Ken.

a suggestion for people who are trying to post, and get "block" messages or have some other reason to think that their post didn't go through:

please don't try it a second (or even third time). Even if you think it didn't go through, it _might_ have, in which case doing it again will simply result in multiple identical posts (as we've been seeing). And, if it didn't actually go through the first time, it probably ain't going through the second and third times either.

Is this the "cloudflare" issue, or are there additional/other issues?
The "cloudflare" rejection/issue is a bit more dire than just
prohibiting your posting---it also locks you out of DA :(:( TIA.

The issue was cloudflare once plus several times once you press “publish comment” the tab dims out and gets stuck not allowing the post to go through. I got locked out temporarily but after clearing the cache was able to get back into the site.

cumulus -- I can only address my experiences here w/ cloudflare blocking. When I've been blocked, the post seems to eventually show up, without further intervention on my part. But I am blocked from accessing the site _if_ I use the browser I posted from (Firefox, private mode). But, if I then go, with reluctance, to Chrome (supposedly "incognito" mode), I am able to view the site.

And. at some later point, Firefox will work for me, without my having done anything further.

It's a puzzlement.

Alan1, thank you---I am thankful/grateful for the work around!

One of my posts made it through using an old version of Firefox after a long delay so that may be a work around. Like alan1 says just try it once it may show up later.

Tried to post this in a new thread but stopped…could be whatever is ailing current DA posts on some big CUs …must be contagious…
Saw some posts on other sites…briefly Treasury is not disclosing that if one properly completed 1040 and 8888 forms to purchase ibonds with refunds one may not get ANY ibonds! The IRS owes interest on any refunds not paid by a date certain in June this year. REMEMBER the IRS has no incentive to avoid paying interest, ie promptly processing the return, since interest is paid out of another account! If the IRS is late it adds the interest to the amount in the return for purchase of ibonds and if that total…exceeds $5k, no ibonds…but a check! And this is not disclosed. Further the IRS could have easily rolled the interest into your account for 2022…but not the IRS. Big disclosure failure!  Grandkids will not get ibond/Santa gifts this year for last year

I just posted on the bank promotions section of the forum re an increase in Ally Bank rates. Cloudflare has blocked me (on the browser I used to submit my post). I'm on another browser now; my post re Ally has gone through, but I'm still blocked when I try to access the site through the other browser.

alan1, have you tried clearing cache on problematic browser?

alan1, Just a quick reply, FYI: I'm not certain what is causing these issues, but it happened to me a week or ten days ago. I sent Ken three emails before my account became unblocked again, but like you and others I was still able to access DA by trying a different browser once I gave it some thought and tried it. Obviously, they have some scam, fraud, settings that are triggering the blocks and hopefully the team is working on getting it resolved in a timely fashion.

I tried to post first time yesterday unsucessfully. It was same post but each time button went dim. Should I just wait a couple of days and try again?

I'm experiencing same problems as DA user=alan1: cloudflare error, DA lockout!
When I go to another browser I see the post did occur: ~625pm CST Fri 7-29-22,
"SFGI Savings Account APY (Was 1.21%) Now At 1.51%". Looks unfixed to me :(:(

Beta test time, DA
PS Just tried to post the following w/o success (blocked)…under the heading “US Bank follows WF lead?”…
Noticed where US Bank agreed to multi-million $ settlement with CFPB “for more than a decade…pressured its employees to open fake accounts in their customers’ names….”  Did CFPB require the bank to “return its much touted ethics awards?”  If not, shame on you CFPB!

I am having same problem as md2121. When I click on Post Deal button, it goes dim and nothing else happens. Happened twice in the last two days. Using latest version of Firefox browser, cache cleared, VPN off.

And I see my other post above has a date of July 30…which is wrong. It was earlier. If it was the 30th, it would be expressed in hours

Ok did a post using an old version of Firefox(regular mode) today and it worked perfect. I have not tried Chrome yet but Firefox works as a workaround for now.

Well, my news is not as positive as D1's. Just tried Firefox. Entered all info to post TAB Bank increase yesterday. Pressed Post Deal and it dimmed. Switched to Chrome. Same problem. Then opened new Firefox window, entered depositaccounts.com in url, pressed return and got Cloudflare "Sorry, you have been blocked" error.  I am writing this comment on a previously opened Chrome window that already had depositaccounts displayed.  Sorry for all the detail.  Trying to help.

UPDATE:  I am updating my previous post above.  Just went back and tried Firefox in private window mode as suggested by alan1.  Entered all info for post and pressed Post Deal.  It paused for a moment and then gave me Cloudflare error.  However, upon checking in Chrome, the post appears to have been successful.  And, after a few moments, I am now able to open depositaccounts.com in Firefox, also.  Pretty odd, but seems to work.  So, for me, Firefox in private window mode seems to be the solution.

Tried to post the Navy FCU 3.3% 33 month add-on special in the forum and same problem. Tab dimmed out and the post would not go through. This has happened several times. CD capped at 100k.

I can still only create a post using an old version of Firefox in regular mode. Tried Chrome again today(both modes) and same old thing press submit and it just hangs and won't post. This isn't the Cloudflare issue this is something else.
