* "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.

Quote from: Selenography;149788
I have been through several situations where I was majorly violated. I went to the appropriate authorities in every case, answered questions, did everything "right."  Yet, none of those who were responsible for my suffering ever had to face any real consequences.  Sure, they got questioned by police or their boss or a civil rights council, but they didn't have to pay money or do jail time or even sit trial or anything.

Going through all of this, I've been forced to think a lot about justice.  I am still angry that I was denied justice, but I am not even sure what I think justice is or if I think it's even a real concept and not just an heuristic.


For myself, I keep aware of the dichotomy - Laws are written by human societies, 'justice' is an abstract concept. It's hard to enforce such a thing. I have come to terms with this as summed up here:

And don't even think too much about 'what is 'just'. It's too variable.
