Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

OK I get it.

F+W are working on updating the site to eliminate the problem.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

This very minute I clicked on the Forum Jump button to return to the Palette Talk list of threads. Guess what?? Yup! Chaturbate!

I'm sorry, Admins and whomever is trying to deal with this. It has nothing to do with the buttons on my browser or the way I return to a Chanel. I did NOT use my browser back button.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I'm on my computer (and on Wet Canvas!) for hours every day. I have NEVER been directed or dumped onto the Chaturbate Site!

I DO use the "Back Button" with great frequency --- I am on a Mac, which may or may not be germane to the issue, but I think the real key is that I DO have ad-blockers installed! With some degree of frequency I am directed -- or requested -- to uninstall ad-blockers in order to continue receiving data from a source of info that depends on ad revenue for its funding. I shrug with mild regret and don't attempt to use these info sources again -- Google usually offers several other sources for the same info.

I'm a little sorry about keeping on using some sites (the ones that politely ask that I remove ad blockers, but do not prevent access from their site's info if I don't comply, like the very informative and extremely local weather site that is within a mile from my house. If they asked, I'd be happy to send them a few dollars instead of removing my ad blocker.)

Suggest those who are bothered by Chaturbate clean out their "history" and install ad blockers, and see if that doesn't solve the problem. : )

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Hi Lynn/LC... you're so lucky that you haven't been redirected! I regularly clean out my browsing history using ToolwizCare or CCleaner. I haven't been redirected for some number of weeks avoiding the use of my browser's back button. But today, using the Forum Jump, there it was!

I'll install AdBlocker and see what happens next.

I am using Mac products and have AdBlocker installed, but I still have the Chaturbate problem.

You are just fortunate

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Oh, Darn!!! Catspeare and Geoff/Shipbroker say that Adblockers didn't solve the Chaturbate problem for them. Phooey!

But try it all the same -- you have nothing to lose except ads, and maybe you'll be fortunate, too : ) Or maybe, if you've once been victimized by the Chaturbate site, you're "marked," and cannot prevent it, like Geoff who said he was directed there immediately upon signing in before he even arrived at Palette talk.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Clear your cookies (temporary Internet files) before installing your adblocker Lynn with ccleaner. Start with a clean computer.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I've never got those Chaturbate add/redirects/whatever it does. I use adblocking plus scriptblocking addons, and open every threads in new separate cards/tabs in my browser, and just ctrl+w to close them, (ctrl+tab or ctrl+shift+tab to navigate between them back and front, and ctrl+shift+T to re-open recently closed tab), so I don't use either browser back button nor backspace, at all. Maybe this technique will help people who deal with this chaturbate thing? May be annoying to use at first, but once it comes to hand, it is fast and convenient.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Whilst I find it annoying it doesn't disturb me as I can soon rid myself of it..knowing that I didn't put it there!

If our webmasters read the blurb there are contact details and 'guarantees'
Of intent! Have they made direct contact themselves??

Sorry Geoff we have no contact with the webmasters and can only communicate though the F+W admin.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I haven't had the popup for a while but I first saw it in April. Every time I have seen it, it has been after hitting the back button to return from a thread to ever the forum or my WC subscribed threads page. I have only seen it on Safari on my iPad as once I saw the popup, I was reluctant to use the site on my PC in case it got infected (even if the issue seems to be with WC itself and less likely the system).

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

When I logged in this morning, there it was. I didn't use any of the back buttons or change of channels. By the way, it seems to affect only Palette Talk for me.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I do wonder if they ever found customers here - after all they do provide models
