A loyal reader reports that we’ve hit the big time, and Secure Computing’s censorware has banned us at their dozens of customers’ sites. Now, it’s their right to make software that prevents you from getting the best in security news and analysis, and my right to wonder how they get their heads up there.
I’m happy to be in fine company like BoingBoing, and sad that our readers are inconvenienced. If one of you would like to figure out how to get us unbanned, that would be swell, but I see no reason to jump through their hoops. Its not like our readership numbers dropped, a reader (who wants to remain anonymous) wrote to let me know he coudldn’t get through.
I have no interest in chasing Secure Computing down and begging their forgiveness or permission. Let companies cut us off, if that’s what they’d like. Compare and contrast a large mutual insurance company in Massachusetts who links us off their intranet page. (I’m guessing it’s for the breaches category?)
If you don’t want to help get us unbanned at the expensive list level, feel free to check out the “Boing Boing Guide to Evading Censorware.”
