Blog Blocked

I was in a budget hotel and hoping to do some writing while I had some downtime. Instead I found my blog blocked by something called “Norton Safe Connect” which labeled it a dangerous, malicious site. No option to go to the site and bypass the warning.

I’m surprised there isn’t more of this. Generally you can look at anything, anywhere, but maybe that will change. They aren’t going to put up with us forever.


About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    It happens quite often, Thrashy. There are a good number of places where I can’t access Amren, SBDLP, and so on. The reference I see is “hate and intolerance.” Yet I can access muzz and black nationalist sites.

    Get a VPN service like Tunnel Bear, and you can bypass this kind of filtering.

    That Norton software is like that f-ing annoying ‘Net Nanny” software you see on public laptops in, say, hotel lobbys and hotel lounges; its main function is to prevent porn and other salacious content from kids in family environs; it’s probably any and all uses of the “N’ word that triggers Norton’s block, as swear words and racial slurs are often tip-offs for more traditionally *(visually) obscene content.

    Websense filters can also be indiscriminately draconian. One time at work I wanted to consult Charles Manson’s Wikipedia page and found it was blocked due to “violence”.
