Out of the Blue

I've been seeing an error here on odd occasions, an I'm wondering if anyone else is getting it too. Sometimes clicking on a link to our forums will return the following error: "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." It's happened often enough to have me wondering if it might be a problem just on my end, since I haven't seen any references to anyone else encountering this. If you have by chance run into this one recently while using this site, please drop post in the forums or shoot me an email. Thanks!

100% what Tom said.

It's what I tried to explain last October too, when you first mentioned this issue.

The too long request header in these cases is most likely the Cookie header. Something managed to set too many / too long cookies for your domain, likely amassed over an extended period of time. Your browser simply attempts to send every single non-expired cookie matching the origin and path you are visiting with every request, all concatenated in a single header line.
