* "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.

Spider Man 3 never happened. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

Err, right. The Robotech version of Macross is that greatest love story? The author needs to read some better fiction and watch some classic movies -- and probably see a few plays.

I find this kind of hyperbole entertaining sometimes--I once wrote a pretend treatise on the philosophical Secret Meaning of "Voltron"--but yeah, using this much superlative is probably also just clickbait.
Entertaining article, anyway.
