 Replying to [comment:6 boonebgorges]:
 > BuddyPress provides an alternative user-facing interface for the
 registration process. But user accounts and the login process are all
 handled by WordPress.
 > I believe that this specific 403 message comes from wordpress.com. I
 would recommend reaching out to them for support, as the BP team is
 unfamiliar with their systems and unable to debug there.

 Hi @boonebgorges
 I contacted Wordpress and found a solution. I thought I'd post it in case
 it comes up with someone else again:
 >That should mean that single sign on is causing trouble. To test that,
 navigate to My Site --> Settings --> Security in your WordPress.com
 dashboard, and disable the 'Allow sign in using WordPress.com accounts'
 >This means that you will no longer be able to access your wp-admin area
 with your WordPress.com login information though. We'll need to make sure
 we set you up with an account for your wp-admin area.
 >We'll need to set you up with a password for your username for wp-admin.
 >You'll need to go to WP-Admin > Users and then select your username from
 the list.
 >The problem is that on WordPress.com the option to allow WordPress.com
 sign in replaces the regular registration form that BuddyPress uses to
 allow users to sign in. So we need to disable this option to let the
 user's sign in using only their Buddy Press log in without a WordPress.com
