Not allowed to view specifications...

When I got to 'Tech Specs' on the recent Burmeister amp reviews...

...I get the message "Access denied. You are not authorized to access this page."

I have tried 'Tech Specs' on other reviews and they work fine.

Does the system know I am too poor to afford them? (I don't remember being asked anything about my income when I registered.)

How does it know I am not really a Russian oligarch?

Anyone else get this problem?

If not, are you a Russian oligarch?

I've had the same page a few times and just reload rather than bleat like an indignant prole.Of course you could just point the issue out without the shoulder chip.

Are you the last of the 3 Americans to claim their share of the 650m dollar lottery jackpot by any chance?  Tut.

RE: Not allowed to view specifications...

A review actually consists of three documents - the product, its specs and the review itself, and in order to put the review up all three need to be published.  There were *supposed* to be measures in place to prevent any one being published without any of the others, but it was broken when I left.

So one of two things has happened; the person who published it forgot to publish one of the bits, or the person who published it wasn't supposed to but published one of the bits inadvertently.

It seems somebody has published the specs now though rather than unpublish the review, which suggests the former...

Anyone familiar with bluesounds.co.uk? They have Burmester for sale on suspiciously low prices, even not making sense (same model for a different price or a superior model cheaper than one from a lower range).

I'm getting access denied on the entire whf forum from my phone about 50% of the time. Works fine on the computer though.
