Hello. Starting two weeks ago I lost the ability to access http://feedback.azure.com/ in any way:
I tried (on Windows 10) in both Edge and Chrome. I cleared my cookies in both, exited the browser and started them up again. I even see this behavior on my phone. None of this makes any sense so I assume that it's a problem with the site. I'm specifically trying to get to https://feedback.azure.com/forums/908035-sql-server/ , but I can't even access http://feedback.azure.com/ .
I don't know if this is the most appropriate place to report such a problem (I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't), but I have no idea where else to go (neither https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home nor https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/products/sql-server seem appropriate). I did try posting this on https://answers.microsoft.com/ but was suggested to try here instead.
If there is a more appropriate place to post this, please let me know. I'm also curious if anyone else is having this problem. It seems very odd to me that Microsoft would all of a sudden remove read-only access for anonymous users to the feedback system after years of allowing it and there being tens of thousands of links across many sites pointing to those tickets / items.

This issue has magically fixed itself, sometime in the past week or two.
(I will close this item, but am not deleting it as this was a valid issue for about a month that others most likely experienced).
