* "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.

I saw the story on the news last night.  Here's a link to the story Discover Magazine did: Green Glowing Kittens

It's amazing what science comes up with. Now, if only we can find a way to stop new diseases from forming in the first place. (Impossible, I know, but I can dream can't I?)

And if I may stray slightly off topic, I want a glowing kitty!!! They might have trouble catching mice though.

Let me just say that this sounds so absurd it might actually work! I mean, glowing kittens that are immune to FIV? Sounds like something out of a sci-fi novel.

I happened across a response to this article elsewhere: "What a lovely world we live in. We allow all sorts of sexual misconduct, then try to cure the consequences of that sin by performing sick experiments on defenseless little kittens."

I hope I'm not the only person who feels particularly enraged at this bigoted statement.

I suspect it's probably a troll, in the event that it isn't...WTF? One has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the other, and what do they mean by "sexual misconduct" anyways?

She's actually a friend of mine from way back who is Christian. She's so Christian she works for a cult awareness program. Cults are, of course, all religions not hers. Baptists, to her program or what have you, are considered a cult.

Honestly, she's heading back to the 80s when AIDS was the "Gay Disease." I remember the fear that would appear whenever AIDS was mentioned when I was a kid. It made a pretty powerful impact on me: my dad died of it in 1990. I never told anyone what he died of because I didn't want to be typecast as an outcast for having a "gay" father... even though, he wasn't.

WHY WON'T ANYONE THINK OF THE PUSSY KITTENS?

Yeah, no, pretty enraged.

Sadly, that's still a fairly typical belief among those who project their prejudices onto their deity.

This is exactly why I skipped the article comments section. I knew somebody would have to there. :rolleye::

This made me laugh, which is a good thing right now.

She and I are debating this whole thing. I'm pretty sure our friendship is terminated. I'm both saddened by this and relieved. It's really hard keeping my religious comments to myself when she likes to put that "holier-than-thou" expression on and go on about how her religion is the only religion.

Ah, right, of course, because we pagans are just hobbyists with our gods. It's like collecting and painting miniatures, of course.

(I've also lost friendships over that attitude. It is both saddening and relieving. I feel you.)
