RE: Anyone having issues accessing the forums
Tobey, sorry for the late reply on this. The message where I wrote about deactivating some of the mod_security rules seems to have done the trick, as no one has reported any more 403 errors, and Google reports that it is not crawling over any errors, either.

So in that respect, the offending rule that would block someone for hitting a 403 error 5 times in 30 minutes (which is the rule's threshold), has been neutered (while becoming a new potential exploit elsewhere in the site. lol)

Steve, is there a way to disconnect the 403 errors from the firewall? I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that if someone loads a page that generates a 403 error for whatever reason (%22 or other), then they're automatically blacklisted. Maybe you could leave the 403 errors in place, if that's what the VPS provider wants to prevent SQL injections, etc, but cause it not to be so aggressive about adding IP addresses to the blacklist.
