AP Blocks Links from Its Own Site

Quickly fixed, but this was funny. As I was writing my previous post about the AP mess, I went to their web site and clicked on the stories highlighted on the front page. The result was an error page stating that the requested page was forbidden. For a moment, it looked like they didn't even permit their own site to link to itself!

Once you find your way in, the AP site is a reasonable source of news. They might want to work on that front door, though. A casual visitor to their site won't find their advertiser-supported news site.
