* "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 am not ignoring any fact. I am just aware of what's right and wrong. One religion thinks females should be covered up and be a servant and not have nearly as many priviliges and that you should be killed if you were raped just so you can "restore your honor" and by being stoned no less. Does that mean I should do it because it's normal for a religion to do that? That's absurd. I have already explained my morals and ethics and people here act like it's a bad thing to display those good traits...

 
You have your belief of what is right and wrong and it seems like you are very secure in those beliefs and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, you are IMO coming across as a little judemental of those who don't share those same convictions. I agree with stephyjh that this could cause an obstacle to your personal growth.

I think your compassion and your capacity for thinking beyond one-dimensional judgment is sorely lacking.

 
Have anything to back that up with? Or are you here to display your poor observation and nothing else? The very least you can do is explain why rather just point it out. Anyone can do that. It's childish and absurd that when someone asks or answers a question and they don't like it, there's almost always someone with a 2 digit i.q. that attempts to act witty and sends some sophomoric comment. I see that too many times in many forums.

Nevertheless almost none of you answered by original question but it should not be that surprising. Getting answers is sometimes like pulling teeth in many places.

There's about four pages worth of evidence for this.  Perhaps it's your observation that's lacking?

How about we actually stick to the topic? I asked a question. Answer it or don't.

I answered the question that you posed for stephy.  See, when you inquire about something, and someone replies to you, validates your message and issues a response, we call that answering.  And I'll post how I like :D:

Well, your behaviour in this thread has been full of condemning things as "immoral" that aren't.

The fact that you're trying to detect as "bad" things that hardly anyone else here agrees are negative (and are promulgating as positive things that other people find disgusting) should rather demonstrate that you're on a wild goose chase.

Well I admit I didn't answer you question because I found some comments I took issue with as I was reading it. So to answer your question, I think you can tell when someone is giving off positive or negative vibes. That doesn't mean the person is good or evil, it could just be they are in bad mood or just found out something awesome. For example, I'm sensing negative vibes from you right now but that doesn't mean you're a bad person.

EVERYONE thinks they are at least moderatley good? Now you're the one exaggerating. That isn't true and there are others that are fully aware of what they are doing and they don't care or have little to no morals or have no conscience. Are you sympathizing with the evil person who believes they have a reason to steal, rape and kill? Should he be let go because he doesn't know any better? There is NO excuse for that. No matter if they say their religion commands it, or that the victim hurt their feelings or whatever. It's not like they believe what they are doing is right and they are "poor misunderstood people." Rather they will often justify it or find some excuse to kill and hurt. Whether they do it gleefully or have some twisted reason for doing it, it doesn't change the fact that it's wrong.

 
... You're going to repeat what I said, and then say it means the exact opposite of what I said.

I'm not saying they're right.  I'm saying TO THEM they're right.  Which you said as well.  Everyone has an excuse for what they do and believes that they are right.

So again, you're looking for someone that *emanates evil*, which is tricky when no one thinks THEY are evil.  And you're trying to draw a simple line across multiple axes.

People who do some truly heinous stuff often believe they are still good people, that it was a temporary lapse in judgement, that society, religion, or their own personal moral code says it's okay. This isn't exactly a new concept. These people really DO believe they are being misunderstood and that people are attacked them based on false or "blown out of proportion" information. It's actually terrifying to think about.

Is there a way one can sense the good or bad in someone? I know people can sense auras and know if someone has a significant amount of energy but I wonder if people can give off positive or negative energy. Wondering if you can sense if someone has a good heart or that their heart is corrupted and or tainted just by sensing them.

 
It sounds like what you're looking for here is a basic detect alignment spell. How easy this is depends on whether you consider yourself a magic user or a priest - it's a little easier for clerics, presumably because you have your own alignment requirements based on your deity. They get it at level one, mages and most other magic users at level two.

Unless you have developed a house rule version of the spell, rather than "detect alignment" you get to detect either good or evil, and it sounds from your question as if you'd be comfortable assuming that the absence of one is evidence of the presence of the other, but you have to be careful. Neutral is still a possible alignment, and accusing people of being evil simply because they're not good can have all kinds of ramifications both in terms of game mechanics and in terms of in-game politics if your DM rolls that way.

The cleric's version of Detect Evil requires a chant, a series of hand gestures, and the presence of a holy symbol. As long as your not bound or gagged, this should be a very straightforward spell for you to pull off.

Unless you live in the real world instead of Krynn, in which case you're kind of fucked.

No.  There isn't.  

You can judge on actions, like you've been doing, but morality and ethics are fluid and do not depend on the views of ONE PERSON.  

tl/dr: No.  There isn't.
