Cannot access site on Safari...

This is part of the message I get when I try to access Chowhound on Safari:

<Bad Request

  1. I've been having this problem since yesterday.
    To the OP, reset Safari and it will work... for a while. The Bad Request message keeps popping up.
    What's going on?
    Anyone? Bueller?

      Exactly. It worked for a few minutes and then I got the same message when trying to view one of the boards. Really annoying.

        I'm getting a bit tired of resetting Safari!
        DH accessed CH on his PC at work and he said it took a long time to load. There's something funky going on with the software.
        And while I'm complaining :-)
        Posts take forever to load.

            I find Firefox s-l-o-w on CH frequently for me.

    2. Same thing here. Switching to Firefox, everything loads fine. But that's not my usual browser with my bookmarks, etc., so I hope this gets fixed.

      1. Roughly how long do you have to poke around the site before this pops up?

        There's some chance that a change we put out today will address this problem, but I'd like to verify.

          It depends. Sometimes a couple minutes, sometimes 30 minutes.

            I reset Safari (version 5.0.6) once and it worked for a few links but then stopped.

            1. re: Bada Bing

              That has been my experience. Problem persists today. Getting the same message:

              <Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
              Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.......................................>

          2. I'm having the same problem. I get the site on my iPhone though.

              As of yesterday, it's now working for me!

            2. I have been unable to access the site with Safari for two days now. I had just assumed the site was down until I tried with Firefox. I get the same message as Erica.
