Aurhentication Required?
« on: October 25, 2013, 01:36:52 PM »
Every time, today, I go into the "The Impossibility Argument", and only that topic, an Authentication box appears asking me to enter name and password but to something else:

"The server http://fossiel.net :80 requires a username and password. The server says: we uptaden de site. Alleen toegang voor beheer. Temporary closed."

Then has a place where I have to put my name and password.

It's not that I can't get into the topic, it's just that box appears every time I do.

I only have a filter for people who do not consistently beg to be belittled, ridiculed, insulted, and demeaned.

I may believe people, as a whole, should be treated fairly but I also believe those same people are idiots.

It's caused by an image link in a post by Azdgari (reply #640 on page 23 of that thread). Apparently the fossiel.com site was closed for maintenance some time after the post was made, and is requesting authentication for any access attempt.

Ah, perhaps he should edit that out.

Had no idea. :/  Sorry.

Bit late for me to edit it now.
Please don't pull out the faith-as-science card on me.  If you are gun virgins, admit it.   Your entire body of knowledge comes from the news and statistics.

Perhaps a mod should.

The problem will likely go away on its own eventually.
