* action=login (lg) *
  This module is used to login and get the authentication tokens. 
  In the event of a successful log-in, a cookie will be attached
  to your session. In the event of a failed log-in, you will not 
  be able to attempt another log-in through this method for 5 seconds.
  This is to prevent password guessing by automated password crackers

This module only accepts POST requests
Parameters:
  lgname         - User Name
  lgpassword     - Password
  lgdomain       - Domain (optional)
  lgtoken        - Login token obtained in first request
