http://go.redirectingat.com causes "server not found" errors - PIA VPN IP Blacklist by go.redirecting.com?

Several of the SD redirects cause the result of "server not found" error when clicked on and the link attempts to open.

One of the offenders (the most) is " http://go.redirectingat.com ".

I've tried turning off Malwarebytes - no go. Turning off Comodo Firewall - no go.

Update: Turned off U-Block Origin adblocker - no go.

I'd appreciate any ideas.

Thanks

The brickseek link in the above deal post redirects to go.redirectingat.com and causes the "no server found" error for me in both Firefox and Edge.

Running Win 10 with:
Comodo Internet Security (firewall)
U-Block Origin
Malwarebytes

Update again: Seems to be caused by go.redirectingat.com blacklisting PIA VPN IP's... (post #6 below)

Has been going on for years, lots of links get broken because of forced refferal/affiliate codes on this website. Might try copy and pasting the offending link as a temporary fix

"copy link as" and paste only grabs the entire link beginning with the redirect...

Highlight and copy and paste doesn't grab the entire link.

It's really weird because many links work, like Amazon links, but jut a very few like the go.redirectingat ones don't.

Seems like if the referral redirect links don't work, then SD isn't getting the referral. Lots of revenue lost if it's been going on for years......

Ok, when I disconnect my VPN (PIA) then all links connect as per normal.

Sooo the problem appears to either be with PIA or with the individual sites having blacklisted PIA IP's, or go.redirectingat.com has them blacklisted, or ?

Update: It appears that go.redirectingat has PIA IP's blacklisted.

All the sites work when connected outside of the go.redirectingat redirect.

If you hit reply you can see non masked link...to post a non masked link simply wrap it with code tag.

Recently, I started having this problem. Norton is blocking redirectingat.com. Norton says that redirectingat.com is a malicious website not available for whitelisting. I chatted with them last night at length about this issue. They are supposed to call me back tonight.

If I turn off Norton Safe Web, the problem goes away. So, that's where is issue is, with Norton Safe Web.

Any suggestions for a fix to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

THANK YOU! Amazingly simple workaround.

My VPN at home and the firewall/proxy at work both block the redirectingat links and it was driving me nuts.
