* "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.

Another Temple desecrated
« on: December 01, 2011, 04:19:00 pm »
This time in central Wales at the University of Lampeter.  Here's some links:

Some believe this act was inspired by religious intolerance/hatred.  I'm not sure what to believe.  Whatever the cause I hope those responsible are caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent the law permits.

That's terribly disturbing. And I can't believe that University official who said "There is no reason to believe that this was a result of hate crime and would consider it to be an act of vandalism."

Huh? How often do vandals destroy something that thoroughly?

This is just highly wrong! I hope the perpetrator is caught and gets his or her or there come unpins!

That's exactly what I thought when I read it. It wasn't graffiti  and a few broken stones. The whole place was so completely destroyed that they sectioned it off. Maybe the official was one of those who didn't approve of pagan activity?

Especially as the destruction took tools -- meaning it was more likely to be planned.

Exactly! I'm fairly sure "random destruction" isn't usually planned.
