There have been 2 or 3 Virgin articles logged in the Community section over the last few days.
On each of them I am prompted to LOGIN just to read the posts. This is not happening with other posts.
Is this a 'trial' policy or is it some quirk of nature that has been overlooked? I can understand having to LOG IN to create or answer a post, but a requirement to LOG IN just to read an article seems a bit disingenuous.

I am grateful for you 're-locating' this post of mine. I tried to check it a few hours after it was posted for a response but received a message saying that the post "had been deleted or did not exist".
Thanks, we're looking into it.
I've been told this is now fixed. Could you please check again and let us know?
Looks resolved to me now, Sid.
Many thanks Sid.
I can now confirm that each of the locked posts are now individually accessible without logging in.
