Yes, it happens. If you want us to check and see if there's an issue with the page, a link would be very helpful.

Not on woot but on some other sites that sell or provide news.

I always think "well, they finally caught me."

it could mean your IP address is banned from that site/server.
There are literally dozens if not hundreds of reasons why this could be. Sometimes sites ban entire ranges of IP addresses because they've had an unusual number of IP addy's in that range cause them problems (hack attempts, DDOS, etc) so because they kept getting attacked from IP's in that range, decided to block the entire range instead of adding a single address to the blocklist every time the bad guy was messing with them.
It could be because the IP address is from a country which that particular website doesn't do business with. It could be that the website in question isn't licensed to display their goods in the country which is represented by that IP range.
Hell, it could be that your IP address was previously held by someone who did something that pissed off someone on that site.

Anyway, if you have a dynamic IP address that changes everytime you go online, just unplug your router and plug it back in

(cont)
and you'll get a new IP address.
Are you using a VPN or anonymizing proxy? (something like TOR)
many websites block those IPs because they want to know who's actually on their site.
If this is why you are getting a 403, then your best bet is to contact the site and tell them you got a 403 error, and ask why that is.

Anyway, that's just one of the potential reasons you could be getting a 403 error. Another could be that you need to be logged in to the site in question to view those web pages. Which site is giving you the 403 error?
