We access Shavenook via the Epic Privacy browser, which has an integral VPN component.  

Today, I edited a previous post, and when I completed my corrections, I clicked on the Update button, and received the attached error message.  

What is going on?  Is the Shavenook.com website at war with VPN proxies?

No war, Tom. That’s a new one to me. Have you changed browsers or settings recently?

An error 15 is most often caused on the client side, according to a quick google, but can also be caused by the IP being blocked by the server.. did you recently change anything??

You ask a question that forces me to give you a peek into a huge can of worms:  

I receive my Internet service from CenturyLink, the “local” node of which is in MicroSeattle.  None of my computers runs Windows.  
I have on my computers five (5) browsers concurrently:  Seamonkey, which is — by far — my preferred browser, Epic Privacy browser, Apple’s Safari, Vivaldi, and Google's Chrome; Epic and Vivaldi are both based on Chromium, a Google product with the skeletal guts of Chrome.   Of those five browsers, only Epic, which is the only one with an integral VPN, also is the only browser that will display shavenook.com properly.  

Here is what shows on the screen when I attempt to reach shavenook.com with Vivaldi:

And here is what shows on my screen when I successfully log onto shavenook.com with Seamonkey; I get the same display when I log in using Safari or Chrome:

Epic (uniquely among the five browsers listed here) displays Shavenook exactly as Shavenook historically has displayed.

All five of the listed browsers are up-to-date on the current release; only one one of the five browsers has been subjected to major modification of settings:  the settings for Seamonkey (uniquely among the five browsers) have been modified so the display of serif typefaces (“fonts,” so mislabeled) shows as Verdigris MVB and the display of sans-serif faces shows as Rotis Semiserif 55; the pages that I view under Seamonkey are MUCH more legible and readable, using those typefaces, than the pages displayed using faces selected by the coders of 99.9% of websites.  (MVB are the initials of Mark van Bronkhorst, who drew the Verdigris typeface.) 

I know; that was a more detailed reply than you expected or needed.
