Looks like the entire "Free Player General Discussion" folder has been nuked from the main list. It's still listed on the dropdown menu, but it sends you to a "If you see this, something got broke" holding page.
If this was a planned move... I got to say it sucks. The Free Player forums are the place for... well... FREE PLAYERS to be able to post. And with the addition of the Steamers swinging through, there will be a lot more froobs looking for advice.
So I hope it's a minor error. The alternative would be a scary move.
I suspect that the changes have to do with the recent rash of spammers that came by during the last week.
