Accessing OO Forum after Google search

Postby Herb40 » Wed May 14, 2014 5:11 pm

I sometimes do a Google search to find answers to questions about Calc, and links to www.oooforum.org items frequently appear in the search results, but if I click on one of those links I wind up in an infinite loop trying to access google.com with a very long URL such as http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q= ... 9033,d.b2U

What do I need to do to access these items?
OpenOffice 4.1.3 on Windows 10

The http://www.oooforum.org is so heavily spammed that it is almost unusable. I understand the moderators have given up trying to stem the spam; if you get a result from Google pointing to that Forum, you can access it via the Google cache (a little black triangle beside the result on my browser).
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.4 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
