I'm getting some weird message when I try to hit the forums:

Our anti-spam program has detected that you are a robot trying to send spam via our forum.

I finally realized I could just type in some answers to bypass this, I assume it's intentional?  I want to know how you guys figured out I wasn't really a GAG (Gay Asian Gamer), but actually a ROBOT.  And I also want to know if you are anti-robot, why do you allow Ceekay to persist?

We're trying to keep you from finding out that GW2 went into open beta this morning.

Yes, but not one that exists before noon. Tongue. Besides, that bot is on staff.

Are you logging on from some shared network?  Said shared network has likely had someone do enough shady activity to get flagged by the whatchmadoo watchdog list that GT uses for that spam prevention thingie.

Unless my work/company has some shady activity, which you'd think it wouldn't....

Got it again today.  I was on earlier and no issues.  Then suddenly this afternoon I had to hit the site multiple times before I got the little addition puzzle that allowed me in.  Weird.

Can you screen cap that and send it to me?  I'd like to see what you are encountering.  Also, if you could nab your IP address at the time that'd be great.

Next time I see it I'll screen cap it.  It's basically the entire screen is taken up with forum access denied type of content and messages from Ceekay taunting me about my post count suffering.

OK I got it - sent a screen cap to Ron (hopefully got the right email address that was listed on the thing).  Please let me know if you don't get it and I'll send it again.

I think it's finally stopped for me, but I'm not 100% sure.  Haven't seen it in a couple weeks I think.
