    What does this site's "Bad Request" error mean?
    For the last week or so, everytime I go to forums.hipinion.com, I get this error:

    Bad Request

    I have no idea what it means, but it won't let me move past it. The site usually gets fixed within a day or two if it's down.

    The error is explained in detail here, basically something on your side of the internet is screwing the URL request that the browser sends.

    How else can I fix it? I read that link and my cache's been cleared and it only happens on that one site.

    I'm using Safari. Cleared the cookies and the site worked for a few minutes then I got that error again. Which cookie should I delete and where is it?

    No idea. Open up Safari preferences > Security > Show Cookies and search for hipinion. Delete all the hipinion cookies as a start.
