Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
This is the message I'm getting when I try:

Redirect Loop


The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

I do have cookies enabled. I even put Cnet.com in the exception/allow (using FF). I tried IE and got in, so it's not a server issue.

Update, I can get to the forum with IE, but when I try to log in, the blue progress bar moves like molasses. Then it just sits there with the blue circle spinning its wheels but not getting anywhere. Odd. Maybe it has to do with a CNET server?

I've never been to that forum but I tried and got the same thing you did.

Maybe it's something wrong on their end.

Have other people try and see if they get through but I can't either.

With IE, Yes. With Firefox, No. Did manage to find a thread in the forum feedback from others having problems as well.

Sounds like something on their end.

Just tried it with Firefox and no problems getting in. I'm wondering if the issue is an overload of ads or bad scripts to the ad servers. I do have a host file that prevents my computer from loading crud from the known ad sites.

Yep, I agree it must've been on their end. No problems, today. I think at first I was just a little shocked that they would have that kind of problem.

Harry, I've had that with sites before... site really wants to display an ad and my computer really doesn't want to let it be displayed.

I tend to just decide that sites that want their ads that badly, don't want me that badly.

I think CNET has been bought by somebody else and they want to squeeze in a little more revenue.
