Anyone else tired of the redirect?

Seems I can't come to Cafe Guerbois anymore, because almost every time I click on a thread I get direct to a site that says I must be 18, and if I click back too fast goes to some rather juicy porn. I've got no problem with porn, if anyone wants to watch it fine by me. However I am actually coming here to WC to read some threads with fellow artists, about, well, generally about art.

FWIW I also often frequent the oils forum, still lifes, portraits... occasionally acrylics, and none of those redirect me to porn.

Neither have I.

I gathered most people have found a way around it as I don't see many reports of late.

Re: Anyone else tired of the porn?

It is very unfortunate.
Doug has posted some ways to combat it in the Site Technical Discussions Forum.

Wow! I've missed it

It seems like this has been a problem for a while which I think they are trying to resolve.

Re: Anyone else tired of the porn?

I've never been redirected from WC! I have several times been redirected to some shady porn site when opening an image from Google Image Search, but my security system has so far been very good at blocking such redirects.

Re: Anyone else tired of the porn?

I had this issue for a bit when I would punch the "back" button. It hasn't affected my iPad for a few weeks now, perhaps because I don't use the back arrow very frequently anymore.

Haven't had that happen to me, but I do remember it was a major topic of conversation a while back.

An easy fix for the spammers. Redirect them to my inbox.

It still happens to me on my pc at home, but not at work. I just use the browser back button.

Re: Anyone else tired of the redirect?

Have been fortunate enough to have never encountered this problem . Could be because of Kaspersky .
