Posting new recipes seems to be broken

Posting new recipes to gives a 403 Forbidden, and seems to have done so for about a week. Is this intentional or an accident?

I'm sorry to post this here, but I couldn't work out how else to contact you. The URL for requesting help with the website gives a 404 Not Found, and I didn't think I should email sales.

Hopefully it will only be temporary.

Blame Spammers.

Update (November 2016):
The Recipes page was returned to service, but the spam situation deteriorated again over the following weeks. Additional restrictions were put in place by our WebOps team.

Currently, anyone who already has a published recipe can post more recipes.

If you are not a published recipe author, you will not be able to create a recipe posting.

Unfortunately, this restriction will remain in effect until we can replace, or upgrade, the current Community site.
