Force Apache Server/Tomcat to ignore Transfer-Encoding

I am trying to reproduce HTTP request smuggling using an Apache HTTP Server as a reverse proxy (using mod_proxy) and a Tomcat Server in the back-end.

Is it possible to force either Apache Server or Tomcat to ignore Transfer-Encoding in requests (and only use Content-Length)? Or is request smuggling simply not possible with this configuration?

Are there any abilities or magic items that allow weapon attacks to ignore damage immunity?

DnDBeyond recently released a League of Legends themed adventure that introduces new unofficial subclasses that, while certainly interesting, pose some serious balance ramifications.

One of the biggest offending abilities allows a PC’s weapon attacks to ignore resistances and immunities for any damage inflicted by the weapon attack. I can’t think of single feature or item that grants this effect.

Are there any features or magic items that allow weapon attacks to ignore damage immunity against the weapon’s damage type?

This effect can be permanent or transient.

Does the Thief rogue’s Use Magic Device feature let them ignore class, race, and level requirements on attuning to magic items?

The Artificer’s Magic Item Savant feature states (E:RftLW p. 58, WGtE p. 180; emphasis mine):

[…] You ignore all class, race, spell, and level requirements on attuning to or using magic items.

In contrast, the Thief rogue’s Use Magic Device feature merely states:

[…] You ignore all class, race, and level requirements on the use of magic items.

The Use Magic Device feature doesn’t mention ignoring requirements on attuning to magic items, only on using them. It seems like that would mean a Thief rogue can not attune to a magic item if it has a specific requirement on who can attune to it (e.g. the holy avenger).

Does the Use Magic Device feature let a Thief rogue ignore class, race, and level requirements on attuning to magic items?

[ Politics ] Open Question : How can Trump supporters attack China for downplaying the threat of the virus and claiming they had it under control but ignore the fact ?

Trump did the same thing? Feb. 23: “We have it very much under control in this country.” — Trump in speaking to reporters. Feb. 26: “And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.” — Trump at a press conference. Feb. 26: “I think every aspect of our society should be prepared. I don’t think it’s going to come to that, especially with the fact that we’re going down, not up. We’re going very substantially down, not up.” — Trump at a press conference, when asked if “U.S. schools should be preparing for a coronavirus  March 9: “So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!” — Trump in a tweet.

Where can I find this Discipline that allows a Vampire to disbelieve in sunlight, stakes, etc. so strongly that it can ignore them?

I had a character around 2001 that I was working on for a game that fell apart, and while reading through some book I came upon a very high-power ability that allowed a Vampire to disbelieve in something so strongly that it didn’t exist for it any more. This could be anything, including doors, which would allow for entry into any room, or blood, which would be less than bright.

I have not been able to find this particular Discipline since, and I would love it if someone can tell me what it is and which sourcebook it’s in.

Make Google Search Console ignore missing review and rating

Google Search Console complains that the “review” and “aggregateRating” are missing (optional) on the product scheme

A lot of posts say “Just ignore it, it’s optional”

But we are never ever going to get reviews. As in never.

Is there really no way of turning these warnings so I don’t see the 746 products with these useless warnings, which hide the few products which DO have errors in the descriptions?

I’m tempted to add a 5-star rating and a revivw saying “we like this product” on all products to get rid of the warnings, but I’m not sure it’s a good idea 😉

Shouldn’t a net (or grappling) attack ignore armour / armor?

I look at grappling and net attacks and I’ve tried them extensively in game both as a player and as a DM. I wouldn’t want to unbalance the game but it’s not clear to me that in reality it would be any harder to grapple a night in plate armour with a net than it would were he unarmored.

Also the net is really completely useless as it stands. I’ve tried it for the monsters, my players have tried it as players. I’ve tried it as a player. It’s just a waste of everyone’s time… at best it causes a player to lose an action… and when you’re trying it on the tank then invariably it misses anyway with no chance of even doing damage. If you want to make a dent in the party it’s much more effective just whittling away at their hit points.

In my view it would be better (and make a lot more sense) if it ignored armour. Only DX mod should count against such attacks. I’d go further and say that the same argument could be made for any type of grappling.

Now I understand that RAW does not make this allowance but my question is – should it? Maybe this is something that should be changed. And I also understand that I’m probably going to get shut down because I’m asking for opinion, not rules interpretation… but I want to socialise this idea in some way and can’t think of a better platform.

There are many benefits to it. If grappling is effective then it will be used… which means less death in the campaign, which can lead to more Role Play.

[ Etiquette ] Open Question : Why do people think I ignore them on purpose at work?

I work at McDonald’s. On multiple occasions, an hourly manager at work called my name multiple times and I never answered. Why? Because I didn’t hear her. She never believed me when I said I didn’t hear her. Well, I was doing something else. She called for me 5 times? ok well I didn’t hear her any of those times. She’s not the only one. The GM sometimes tell me to do something 3 or 4 times b4 I hear him. He doesn’t accuse me of ignoring him. Yet, she says I never listen and ignore the hell out of her. If I’m getting something done, I’m focusing on it. How can anyone expect me to hear anything more than few feet away? Outside work: I could be getting out of a friend’s car when they drop me off somewhere (like work) and as I get out, she be yelling my name but I wouldn’t hear a thing. Then she be so damn offended. Well I was already several feet away

Does UA Psionic Wizard’s Though Form let you ignore non-consumed material components with a cost?

UA Psionic Wizards get a special ability called Thought Form where they become beings of pure energy. Part of that ability is Psionic Spellcasting.

Thought Form

Psionic Spellcasting.

When you cast a spell while in thought form, you can cast the spell psionically. If you do so, the spell doesn’t require verbal, somatic, or material components that lack a gold cost.

What does this mean? Functionally, you have an arcane focus as a class feature so material component usually doesn’t matter.

This means you can’t cast spells like Glyph of Warding (200gp dust, consumed) for free. However, can you cast spells that don’t consume the materials like Chromatic Orb (50gp, diamond)?

Otherwise, the “no material component” seems irrelevant as you have your psionic focus already to activate the ability.
