* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Skin head neo Nazi Heathenry in particular is not acceptable. Unless you believe these people are a good representation of the faith

In theory, sure, I tend agree with your sentiment. But in practice, I see no way to enact this without infringing on people's rights.

It's pretty much like anti-folkishness then. Just like folkishness is a slippery slope because who's to determine if someone is "Nordic" enough to be heathen, who's to determine who is "open minded" enough either?

Lately there has been a lot of hate popping up with groups like the afa.

 
And there has been a huge reaction against it. :D: Many Heathen and pagan organizations have signed http://declaration127.com/   which effectively isolates the AFA as an entity.

Most non-racist kindreds or organizations I know also have bold disclaimers in their by-laws and websites that proclaim that racism and homophobia will not be tolerated.  

I'm not sure what else you want us to do?   We can only live by our deeds, articulate a version of Heathenry that is not beholden to spurious causes, and allow the miscreants who befoul our religion to become increasingly isolated and marginalized by shunning their company.

Well, in the months since I wrote my last response to this thread, I have to concede things have gotten worse.  There seems to be a rabid influx of racialists and homophobes into Heathenry.  I can only conclude it is directly tied to the rise of the alt-right in Europe and America, and more immediately the buoyancy those types feel from the results of the US election.  

I have gotten to the point where I am quite leery of having face-to-face encounters with Heathens outside of known quantities like my local kindred.

Ronald Grump's "election" seems to emboldened a lot of them. It is rather disheartening.
