    403 Forbidden Notice from Wordfence

    I've been trying to post on the AW Reading Challenge thread for some minutes now, but every time I hit submit I'm taken to a page with the header "Wordfence: Securing your WordPress website" with text that reads "403 Forbidden. A potentially unsafe operation has been detected in your request to this site." At the bottom of the notice it reads: "Generated by Wordfence at Thu, 13 June 2019 0:47:18 GMT. Your computer's time: Thu, 13 June 2019 at 0:47:14 GMT." *

    * it's June 12th, incidentally.

    The post I was trying to make had a lot of itals, bolding and color - is that what's causing the problem? I tried signing out, clearing my cache and signing back in, but no good. I was able to post this thread without issue, so I guess there's something in my Challenge post that's causing the glitch.
