* "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.

I can believable a teacher doing that (and should probably be fired for some of it assuming the story is accurate). When they start going over the entire school, however, I begin to wonder if they are looking for issues as some of that sounds quite legal.

Well, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the teacher's mental health, but she DOES sound like the kind of zealot I grew up surrounded by, especially in the public schools back home, and this sounds pretty familiar.  I'm just surprised anyone's doing anything about it.
