Websensed

This is sort of gratifying:

On the other hand, it puts me in Bad Catholic company.

I just looked at the Wikipedia page for Websense, and I noticed that their corporate motto is “Essential Information Protection”.  Let me see if I understand: they prevent people from accessing public information, and they call it “information protection”.  That’s kind of creepy.

    Do I dare comment on here anymore, or will a little robot track my IP and show up at my house with a weapon and threats to seize my laptop in a matter of minutes?
    I will be waiting in the shed, armed with a pitchfork.

    A pitchfork will be woefully inadequate against these folks. Remember, they control the internet.

    It’s an internet filter that employers can use to limit the sites that their employees visit. For instance, it can prevent someone (like me) from responding to a comment left by someone else (like you) until he is home from work.

    So, you were secretly looking at traditional religious websites while at work, and got busted? Oh, I hope the scandal will not become public!

  6. Janet Says:

    You mean to say that I can say all manner of nasty thing here during the day and you can’t do anything about it?

    Exactly. The only catch is that it’s not so easy to know when I am, or am not, at work!
