Hi, via google, acknowledge this has been going on for years, and it's
happening to me increasingly.

I'm using LYNX 2.87, which apart from from the above, works fine.

Please tell me what to do to correct this, and thanks.

If you are being asked for a password, supply the right one. Otherwise it is likely to be a legal question, rather than a technical one, i.e. is there any legal reason why the servers should not refuse to talk to Lynx, and if so, are you prepared to take the operators to court.

In many cases of discrimination against Lynx, using the user Agent string for a recent IE or Mozilla may get round the block, but the site may then serve web applications that only works on those browsers.
