In order to protect users from potential spammers and profile harvesters, I have temporarily made it so most profile information requires a login to view.

Certain things, such as having too many URL bbcode tags in a post or signature, will cause the 403 forbidden error due to the webhost's anti-spam settings.

There isn't a Xbox Live or GFWL ID field in the profile. Where are you trying to add them?

I'll send you my email address via PM in case you'd like to send me what you tried to post exactly.

Yeah, cept I couldn't find any other post with that exact text, which is usually what the spam bots do.

If he doesn't read my PM, we'll know he's a spam bot
