* "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.

What does 'GLBT' mean as opposed to 'LGBT?' I've always seen it put in the latter order, is there some reason why people should be reversing the first two letters? (I hope it's OK to quote your moderator comment to ask clarification to this; I didn't know which other post I could quote.)

Not sure, but personally I have a fondness for the acronym QUILTBAG.

I like MOGAI (minority orientations, genders and intersex) since I find that broader and more inclusive. It's not common, so I don't use it that often.

It also makes me think of Gremlins, which I'm unsure is a positive association.

I FAILED MY KNOWLEDGE CHECK

It's Marginalized, not Minority.

I love that we all probably know what a “knowledge check” is.

In general, I'm like Sefiru and favor QUILTBAG, but I have various preferences (queer, GSRM [Gender, Sex, and Romantic Minorities], and very occasionally GLBT) as seems best suited to specific circumstances.

When I do use GLBT, I use that form rather than the now-more-common LGBT, because the switch in the order was pure lip service, in response to lesbians, bisexuals, and trans folk pointing out the way that collective organizations centred gay men's issues and marginalized those of LBT. I'm old enough to recall this... including gay men actually claiming, with pseudo-chivalrous quips about 'Ladies first!', that swapping which letter came first was an effective fix for the problems. So, I decline to use the lip-service form, and continue with the older form - and when I can do so without distracting from or derailing the topic in which it came up, I'm more overt and style it as 'GLb... t' to reflect the typical prioritization/hierarchy.

If that's not clear, or you want to discuss terminology further, PM me, or better still, start a new thread for the purpose.
