Forums now accesible solely from within Delphi IDE?

I used to access forums by using Windows LIVE mail, or directly via web browser. However, couple of weeks ago this stopped working and Embarcadero rejects my (valid) user credentials when I try to access the forums this way. The only way I can read it and post to it it is to launch XE 5 and select help/embarcadero discussions forums. What going on here?

Solved. I still cannot access forums via NNTP protocol, but at least I can access it via ordinary browser. It seems that the rejection of valid credentials was only temporary site problem.

The site is sometimes down for maintenance for a short time, but
otherwise, it should work. I am using NNTP right now.

I also use NNTP and for the most part it works fine. Outside of normal maintenance
periods, there are moments where it won't accept commands, or just plain
freezes for a few minutes. But it always comes back.
