CNAME Cross-User Banned | Cloudflare Error

I'm occasionally getting a Cloudflare error with the following text:

Error 1014 Ray ID: 434cc7f5dbbcab4e • 2018-07-03 22:27:43 UTC
CNAME Cross-User Banned
What happened?

You've requested a page on a website that is part of the Cloudflare network. The host is configured as a CNAME across accounts on Cloudflare, which is prohibited by security policy.
What can I do?

If you are interested in learning more about Cloudflare, please visit our website.

It's happening occasionally for a few seconds, for multiple threads I'm opening in tabs, and then it clears and everything's fine again.

    Are you logged in on a phone?

    Nope. Browser. Is this not a server-side issue? Might be some of my various domain/cookie-blocking whatevers.

    This is probably a server side problem, but it may also only be a temporary issue caused by a configuration change.

    This happens when one Cloudflare user links to another Cloudflare user with an orange cloud. Possible that PA DNS is been altered and its causing this. Will investigate.

    I got the same error roughly a week ago using a chrome browser from laptop. It happened once and lasted for a bit even after reloading and closing the browser and never happened again.

    Just got the same error.
    Refreshing then led into an ugly 503 error

    Just seen a few of these today, not sure if it's because the office wifi is being even more terrible than usual somehow.

    Had this a few times in a row just now. Normally I see it when I go to the Best Of page, but this time it was as I was trying to get into the forums themselves.

    FYI https://status.vanillaforums.com is great for seeing what might be causing our forums to hiccup :)

    I saw this happen earlier today as well, about the same time. I told it to try a live connection and further received a message about a bad gateway specifically here in the Las Vegas area (though I don't know if everyone would've seen the same for where they live).

    Got one just now. 22,41 Central European Time.

    Might be a local thing, there was a power outage locally and they said on the local newspaper website that there might be hickups with the local routers as a result. Figured I notify anyways, just in case its something more.

    The sky was full of stars, every star an exploding ship. One of ours.
