* "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 would like to clarify that I am not debating whether it is or is not a racial term, obviously it is - I was just unaware of the fact as I have only ever herd it used to mean nomadic people.

 
Yes me too, I had no idea. Now I find myself hoping that i've never used it around someone that has gotten offended without me realising it.

The media almost always use it that way, seemingly without ever realizing it refers to an actual ethnic group(s). I remember when I was a kid, seeing a local news story about a "gypsy crime ring."

We could reenact it, but only if I get to be Elias.

Oh, god... On my last contract there was a very nice guy who was just... SO Elias. My sister and I called him Pillowpants when we chatted, because we're horrible people.

Recently I bought a little cosmetic bag, the colors were nice and - ironically it fit a card set of mine, which had no box anymore.

The whole cosmetic series was named 'Gypsy Queen'.

Confuzzled and proud. :p
