rc.FORBIDDEN returns status code 401

Michael Blume avatarMichael Blume created an issue

HTTP status code 401 - Unauthorized is meant to indicate that the user has not yet authenticated themself to the site, and needs to do so. HTTP status code 403 - Forbidden is meant to indicate that the user has requested an action that the server refuses to take, and authentication will not help

having an object rc.FORBIDDEN which carries a status code of 401 is therefore somewhat misleading.
