* "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.

It's about time. It's a shame it took something at this level to make everyone realise that they were scum.

Supposedly the Queen and the 9/11 families were subjected to this too. The 9/11 families sounds more something an American News Corp group would have been involved in -- why would News of the World do this?

If true, however, I think drawing and quartering those involved would be being too nice to them.

NoW was/is owned by news international. I rather suspect that the knowledge and complicity in this is far higher than mr murdoch is admitting.

All I hope is that Murdoch himself would go down in flames over this.
