post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I guess before I say anything I should say that I know I'm over reacting, but I was really upset & I just have to talk about this. Today at work I was informed that I can no longer visit this site on my lunch hour. That because of the software our corporate office uses it somehow recognizes this site as a possible pronographic site. Now I understand that my computer at work is company property & if they so choose they can control what I vist on the internet, but it really upset me. I have a cat with CRF & now not only can I visit this site, I can't visit any cat sites becasue of the other name used for cats, which I won't repeat so as not to offend anyone. I guess it just makes me mad because I only get a 1/2 hour lunch so it's not like i get enough time to go anywhere & I knew if I had any wuestions about my cat's CRF at lunch I could go to certain sites to talk to others about my problems with my cat. Also, sometimes I would go to a site with free on-line games I'm no longer allowed to do that either because this same software see's those sites as gambling sites. I guess this is one of those straw that broke the camels back things, a couple months ago we were told we could no longer have radios at our desks. I don't know I'm just upset that not only did I lose my radio & the enjoyment of listening to music, but now I can't even enjoy my lunch. I guess I'm not sure what I'm going to do on my lunch now. Well I'll stop feeling sorry for myself now, I just had to vent.

Could you maybe let your supervisor know that your cat has CRF & that this place is NOT a pornographic site? When I was at Motorola, they had software on their computers when we surfed the net -- I had a warning I belive come up while I was also on this site, and it came up with it being an inappropriate site, which I told my supervisor about -- He said not to worry about it. It could be that the software that your company is using is filtering key words that could be considered pornographic, etc.

Our school system's filtering system blocks out jsut about everything on the net. TCS is one of the few places I can get into. Sorry to hear this Rang.

Almost all filtering systems allow the administrator to allow designated sites, but you have to ask! It looks like you have already, but I agree with Tigger - try explaining why and it might make a difference. The only other thing I can suggest, and it's probably not helpful since you have such a constrained time, but most libraries these days have PCs - would your work be near one? That's the only other option I can think of. Sending hopeful thoughts your way.

Rang...I am sorry to hear this. I don't have access to a computer where I work, so this has never been a problem for me, but I would be upset if I had been used to it, and it was taken away from me.

Do you have a computer at home then, that you can check in here on your time off?
