* "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 "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Some days I wonder if we're half-way to the world of V for Vendetta. There's a case in Michigan about whether or not it still should be legal for pediatricians to refuse to treat children of gay, bisexual, and transgender parents. A court in Utah, citing Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby, ruled that Department of Labor investigators cannot interrogate members of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints about whether they're using children for slave labor because it would violate the suspects' religious vows! [going to be sick again] And, of course, every pregnant woman living within ten miles of a catholic hospital is screwed. More and more I'm hearing of women whose uteruses are about to explode from miscarriages gone awry being denied medical care. [dang it, just lost my lunch]

Then this gem popped up today: the First Amendment Defense Act

because oh my GOD gay people and women who like one-night stands might want to work at a college! The end is nigh!

Someone talk me down.

Bigots will always exist. But the things you point out went UNMENTIONED and UNQUESTIONED a decade or two ago. Discrimation is a struggle, it used to be an unchallengable fact of life.

Dragging these bigotries into plain sight allows them to be challenged.

Also, if you need to calm down, brew a cup of tea. Works miracles (heh) for me.
