I am being told by RayneZ_Selbina and Horo_Wisewolf_Figaro (in FFXIV irc) that this is intended.
Apparently we are not allowed to provide feedback or read the dev forums. This was implemented in Beta 3.
Upon trying to access the Beta Development site (https://dev-na.ffxiv.com) I found that I could log in but it would randomly log me into different user accounts and wouldn't allow me to access any Beta feedback or Discussion pages!
This issue was confirmed by UnknownSoldier as well.
Please help by testing to see if you experience the issue as well and then report it to Square-Enix by going to the following link: http://goo.gl/sd5a

The Development Website for FFXIV experiences the following issue.
Issue: after logging in the name in the upper right hand corner labeled "Welcome <name>" randomly changes every time the page changes. Further upon trying to access any feedback pages including the forums the user will encounter the error "This cannot be accessed with the current Square Enix account."
