new type of 'sorry, you have been blocked' error message


I've been trying to edit the opening post in 'my' sticky for about two hours on and off now:
(Re)winding and building motors, tips & tricks, checks & tests - RCG
I am the moderator of that sticky.

I can click edit, it gives me the standard editor, so far so good, but upon clicking the Go Advanced Editing button, I get the "sorry, you have been blocked" error message, with URL www.rcgroups.com/forums/editpost.php?do=updatepost&postid=2274045.
I can edit in the standard editor but it won't let me save, again "sorry, you have been blocked".

edit:
Running Firefox on Lubuntu 18.04, Opera gives same result.

Prettig weekend Ron

Using IE for the browser? That’s the only browser I’ve seen give a blocked message and it’s an issue with the browser changing characters in the URL. Use a different browser and you won’t have that issue.

Ok. Must be a different one. Post a screenshot of that blocked message and I’ll report it to the techs.

'nother one, the attachment in message #6 above does not show up in my list of attachments. In fact, none of my attachments since mid June 2018 show up in my list of attachments.

A related question, (how) can I search for messages (of mine) that have attachments? The Advanced Search does not have that selection option.

Vriendelijke groeten Ron

Attachments seem to be broken at the moment. That’s already been reported.

Yeah I'm getting it too on Chrome. I put in a case with the techs already.

Ok I got a reply from the techs and they said there will be an update to cloudflare in the next few weeks that will help prevent false positives that are triggering these blocks.

Excellent Jason. It's inconvenient not to be able to edit the FAQ/sticky, I have a few additions waiting.
