Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's new site is being blocked by Microsoft
Posted on 07/29/2014 7:51:19 AM PDT by EternalHope
Microsoft's "SmartScreen Filter" is blocking Sarah Palin's new website (sarahpalinchannel.com).
When I went to the site anyway (it's hard to do), the videos would not play.
Whatever is wrong may have been caused by a deliberately orchestrated group of people reporting the site as unsafe to Microsoft, or it may simply be that Microsoft simply does not like Sarah Palin. Regardless of the cause, it may help if people go to the site and click on the "Report this site does not contain threats" choice.
Use Chrome. IE is a pita.
Give us a link....
Video plays on my iPad. Site looks great!
I doubt it’s too nefarious. Am sure they will fix it asap. Could be a coding issue. Could be a few assh***s reporting it. Happens to new sites with some degree of frequency. Also, even sites I have gone to for years get the occasional Google screen saying the site is dangerous.
Am sure it will all workout soon. Also, just make sure you have the most current browser downloaded. I have also found that some sites do better with different browsers. I use Firefox primarily but do use others from time to time. The site worked fine on Firefox for me.
Yeah it does. I’m a bit more impressed than I expected to be. She hired some good coders/site creators.
The website is:
Can someone ping someone with a ping list so we can get some support for Sarah going on this?
The site looks wonderful. The video came through, no problems.
I’m using Chrome, so that may have something to do with it.
No use for PC. On my Mac, no problem
There's no such item on the SarahPalinChannel.com site.
My computer said it is unsafe. In fact the entire screen is red!
Here's what you do:
When you get the warning, click More information
Select Disregard and continue (not recommended).
After site loads, note the URL address bar has the unsafe site warning. Click Unsafe website
In the popup, click Report that this site does not contain threats
This will take you to a Feedback screen you can fill in to say (and select the radio button for this) I think this is a safe site.
Then fill in the characters shown below and click Submit.
If several of us do this, it will remove the unsafe report.
It doesn’t give you an override option?...................

Tried to access site through Google Chrome. Message came back: “This webpage is not available”. On IE, when I report that website does not pose a threat, it comes back: “Error Your request cannot be completed at this time. Please try again later.”
Censorship, restraint of trade, 1st amendment violation, etc.
They block Sarah but they will allow the most perverted and disgusting porno sites to be available. Welcome to Acirema, where the guilty are rewarded and the innocent are punished.
Is there a phishing threat on the site? That’s the reason the there was an alert.
No there is not. It is purely political. Microsoft employees in Seattle. I work remotely for them (contractor). PDS is palpable.
There's no such item on the SarahPalinChannel.com site.
It's not on her site. It's an option on the "SmartScreen Filter" Microsoft's Internet Explorer uses.
I can go there in a different browser and get through. The only browser I know of that is blocking it is Internet Explorer.
The videos will not play in Internet Explorer if you continue to the site anyway.
Done. Her site looks good!
I tested on multiple browsers - the message is just a gay little trick by the Left to try and poison her site for IE-users.
Note that I am using ‘gay’ in its modern sense of ‘vicious and infantile’.
My chrome opened the site just fine, but to join, there is a monthly fee. No thanks.
Consider Palemoon as your new browser....
Ditto on the Pale Moon suggestion - works great, very happy with it.
You mean not the same folks that did ObamaSite?
I dropped Firefox for Torch when they screwed their CEO for making donations to the “wrong” cause.
In IE 11, click the Gear icon in the far upper right.
From the Popup menu, select Internet options.
In the Internet options properties page, select the Security tab.
In the Select a zone to view or change security settings, double-click Trusted sites, and then click the wide Sites button just below and to the right.
Click the Add button, and then click Close, and finally, OK.
Refresh and now the video should play.
Works fine for me.
I’m surprised that Microsoft’s liberals didn’t say that FreeRepublic, Drudge and conservative sites as unsafe.
It wouldn’t let me disregard and enter anyway, report it as safe or any other choice.
It has nothing to do with Microsoft per se. It’s because a number of liberal knuckleheads reported the site to Microsoft as unsafe. I suspect these same folks are working to get Google and Firefox to report the same thing as well.
As posted earlier, simply override and send feedback to Microsoft that the site it safe... the flag will be lifted soon enough.
it does much better than the obamacare website, and did not cost $600 million.
I'm very disappointed to hear that she's charging a fee. Because now she'll be preaching just to the choir, and not to the general public. More people need to hear what Palin has to say. This sure isn't a way to do that.
Or as stated, ad the channel to your trusted sites, or if you can turn off the Smart Screen filter.
I use Pale Moon and IE11 as my primary browsers. Chrome is a piece of crap that slowly drains resources (and battery life on laptops) when multiple tabs are opened, and even when they aren’t. This is a problem that has plagued the browser since its release. For years Google promised a fix and never delivered. They finally admitted it’s an issue that can never be resolved... it’s embedded within code and they would have to build from the ground floor up.
Have not missed it one bit.
I can’t afford to sign up. If she isn’t using advertising to fund this, then she needs a site with free information and one with pay-for-viewing services.
I have a similar problem on the default Android browser that blocks opticsplanet.com because that sell gun sights as well as telescopes.
Lieberals want to prohibit even any mention of guns.Or anything they don’t approve of..
If you boycott everything suggested on FR, you’ll wind up living Amish.
Open the link in your browser. Go to Smart Screen in Tools Menu, report as safe.
A Thank You for the report, Bookmark
Ping to your hearts content;
Just blast on through. Don’t take Microsoft’s word on anything, the antivirus software found no problem at all. When Microsoft asks, tell them you don’t consider the site to be a threat, and open it anyway.
At least as useful as Rush Limbaugh’s website, and you have a lot more opportunity for feedback.
The Disqus was a little bit of a puzzle at first.
But then, I have trouble with Bluetooth. Or Blueray. Or something Blue.
Any idea how much they charge?
LOL - try us for free. Just give us your credit card number.
