* "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.

Yep, he was. One of the goddesses I honour is older than the Tuatha and may be Fomorian. Tailtiu, Lugh's foster mother in whose honour some of us are about to celebrate Lughnasadh, was Fir Bolg, not to mention that wicked half-blood Fomorian Lugh himself...

There's no evidence that the ancient Gaels saw the Fomorii as demons. They may have been the forces of wild nature, or simply the gods of a previous tribe. Dualism of good gods and evil demons is Christian... and, from my limited understanding, is one of the things that Satanists are calling attention to and defying.

I'm too late to edit, but the first paragraph was confusing - sorry... I was talking about two different goddesses. Tailtiu was Fir Bolg. Other gods that Gaelic polytheists honour may have Fomorian roots.

Yeah, before you go telling me about my gods, maybe you should do some research. Someone can correct me if I'm mistaken, because I can't really cite anything right now, but as I understand it Balor, one of the most important Fomori, was actually worshiped on Tory Island. Many gods are part Fomori, and don't even get me started on the Fir Bolg.

 
Bingo to all this :)
Tailtiu and Lugh immediately popped up for me reading it especially. :)
The Fomori aren't considered demons in the mythology/literature at all, it seems to be a more modern concept coming from the whole 'good vs evil' 'God vs Satan'-style way of modern popular religions.
