A reader sends this question via email:
I currently work for a large Fortune 500 company and I check the Friendly Athiest and other secular blogs on a regular basis. I also listen to several secular podcasts.
I was dismayed to find that your site as well as several of the podcasts have been blocked at work as of last week.
I received a warning notice saying that the site has been blocked under the “Occult” category.
I know they have a right to monitor and limit web usage at work, but this still bothers me because they have not restricted access to any religious sites that I can tell.
What do you do at this point?
I suppose if you don’t want to “out” yourself at work, you could somehow file a complaint anonymously.
The reader also wonders if this would bother anyone enough to look for a different job.
Personally, I’d just try to find a proxy — a roundabout way of getting to the sites you want. Someone at work always knows how to work around an Internet filter…
