I do not see why. I am specifying "return 403" 3 times vs once. I was it
doing it this way before and did not think it was so efficient.

Here is my full config

server {
> listen 80;
> server_name ---;
> root /home/website/www/---/public/;
> index index.php index.html index.htm;
>
> # Logs
> access_log /home/website/www/---/log/access.log combined;
> error_log /home/website/www/---/log/error.log warn;

Thank you for the quick response.
