* "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 "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Generally it's best to call people what they wish to be called instead of insisting that you know better.

That's kind of a huge part of what colonialism is.

I just came across this sentence in a blog post (the blog is called "Are Women Human?" if anyone wants more specific context than 'an article talking about transphobia'):

"This isn’t really that complicated; insisting on calling someone by a label or name that they don’t claim themselves is something we do to hurt or poke fun at other people, or when we don’t consider them deserving of basic courtesy."

we rise and fall
as our ashes turn to dust
we shine like stars    - Covenant, "Bullet"
