What exactly does that nasty error page say? Is it a 500 error, or a 403 error, or some bizarre other one? (I may have gotten those numbers wrong.)

Hi
It is not an error page(500 etc..) it always shows the alternate one ..which is designed error page ...in the form-error-page
 
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
