Blocked site

For the last few weeks, myfreecams have been unavailable.

I was told on Twitter that this is because of a court order, which I can find no trace of and it's a big surprise to MFC as they have no knowledge of such a court order. And web site blocked by court order, like TPB for example, you have a landing page saying the site is unavailable.

So.

1. Why is MFC blocked while similar sites like chaturbate aren't.

2. If it wasn't because of a court order, why isn't it in your web safe filter instead of a blanket blocking? It makes your filtering opt in a waste of time if you are going to arbitrarily block sites now matter what.

3. Who decides what sites are blocked?

So can you look into this. Please.

Hi Snasm,

 I'll be totally honest with you - I am not currently aware of any court orders to block myfreecams. 

It's not listed on our Table of Orders. I'll need to dig a little deeper on this, see what I can find, I'll keep you updated.

In the meantime would you please check your Child Safe and Virus Safe settings to ensure the site isn't blocked as a result of your chosen filters?

 Many thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Blocked site

I know it's a year later, but there's still an issue. can you check to make sure any domain with myfreecams isn't blocked. The wiki is blocked, and so is support pages.

 

thanks

Re: Blocked site

Hi Snasm,

Sorry that I never got back to you and even more sorry that this is still an issue!

I've tested this out and that website is accessible to us.

But, when I googled the site, there were a number of different options. The one I tried ended in .com. 

If this is not the correct website please correct me so I can re-test.

If it is then I'll need to know the following please:

  • Does your Hub have modem modem enabled with a router connected?
  • Does your pc have a firewall or other security software running?
  • Does more than one device fail to access that site?
  • Are you able to ping the site?
  • What browsers are not displaying the site and what error is returned?

Please post your ping test results on here so I can inspect them.

Thanks Smiley Happy

I was curious enough to try myfreecams.com and it was accessible, with an adult warning.

can't believe that people want to watch this

 Sad!
