* "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.

Quote from: Altair;129969
Today's episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD was billed as a tie-in to the theatrical film THOR: THE DARK WORLD. Not much connection, but the featured bad guys? A group of Norwegians who the stars of the show identify as a "Norse paganist hate group," Norse paganist further explained as "obsessed with anything derived from Norse mythology."

OK, so it's not like white supremacists who worship the Northern European gods don't exist. (Though in this SHIELD episode, the nature of the group's hate is never articulated as racist or for that matter explored at all; it's just sort of generalized hate.) But how often do you hear about "Norse pagans" (or rather, heathens) on a prime time, major network show at all? To have the only ones we hear about be a hate group just doesn't strike me as fair.

 
You know, I haven't watch a single episode of that show. Really need to! Though, I do think that would be very unfair.
