I got redirected to;
That is where you end up [or don't end up this time], right?

Could it be the way you have SSL installed?  I had no trouble
using two earlier versions, with no SSL support, finding a plain
form with username, pass, and submit fields [plus some advertising. . .].

PPS: Just wondered, anyone had trouble accessing Webcrawler? 
     I think what's happening is MacLynx having a bad reaction
     to a Lynx-friendly site, because it sends a gzipped version
     of the main page [almost all pages, actually] to Lynx user-agents.
     However, messing with the User (A)gent option doesn't change
     it.  I get an "Error uncompressing temporary file!" alert.
     No trouble with Lynx from a shell acct though.
