* "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.

Methinks some Trumpbots were busy last night, esp. since the debate was barely over before Trump started trumpeting how well he'd done by saying, "just look at the polling!"

Also, I'd lay money that most folks who howled over Johnson's fuckup had to google Aleppo for themselves.  And maybe needed a little help finding Syria on a map.


Anyone, who has kept reading newspapers the last four years, have read about formerly less well-known cities like Aleppo and Mosul again and again. I expect politicians to be better informed, not less informed, than the general reader.

Yup. Pretty transparent. Trump must think we're all idiots.

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

I find Johnson's gaffe to be indicative of a broader lack of foreign policy knowledge, even at it's most basic


It seems you're right about that:

C'mon; not even Vladimir Putin??

Glad I follow TC's number one rule and wasn't drinking while reading. I might have just snorted loudly enough that it startled the cat.
