Hmm, no problem here.
I even emptied the browser cache for both Chromium and Firefox.

Could you empty your cache before you try it again?

[EDIT]
I saw that your IP was banned.
That happens when you get to many 404's within a given time.
The site then assumes you're trying to hack the site...

I removed the ban, so you must be able to see the site again.

I'll have to investigate why that happened.
I can only see it has something to do with the "get involved page".

Hi Schoelje,
had to reopen the matter..can't access the site again,.
I have tried the donation through Paypall and the 403 forbidden error showed up again.
Please see if my IP is banned and remove it.
Thank you

Now it was the form...are you using a mobile device for this site (just trying to find out what's happening here)?

I unbanned you again. So, you should be able to browse the site again.

Hi Schoelje,
am not using a mobile device, connected through LAN Modem/Router.
Can access the site again now.
Do not understand why this happens trying to donate.

I saw you were banned again, but I think I know what's happening: a wordpress plugin that shows share buttons at the bottom of each page or post, throws 404 errors. Each page had 5 buttons, and equals 5 404 errors, so you would immediately be banned.

I disabled the plugin and unbanned you again.

You should now not show up in the logs anymore...fingers crossed.
