As many of you know, I am an author over at a certain other web site. I write things, sometimes odd, sometimes funny, sometimes mildly delusional.

Today I arrived at work, logged on, and went about my business. Eventually, I wanted to check what was happening on the web...

This is when I received my surprise.

Geekizoid has now been blocked by my company's internet filtering provider. Ah, yes, the same fate that had temporarily befallen even this site. I wonder if this, too, will be a temporary situation. It also makes me wonder how bored the losers who work for these internet filtering companies must be to look for shit to add to their filtering list.

I can only watch and wait.

...or can I?

When was temporarily blocked because it was mis-classified as "Tasteless" (the same classification that Geekizoid has), we were able to make a case to have the site re-classified as an "Alternative Journal". I don't think you'll have much luck getting the Internet's Most Tasteless Site (apart from all those countless other sites that are more tasteless, anyway) re-classified.

My advice is that you get a new job where they don't insist on treating you like a child and allow you to choose what to look at when you're slacking off surfing the web on company time. Hope this helps. - love it or leave it.

ah well. I'll have to find a proxy that isn't blocked, as most of them are blocked already.

Hey MFS!

Sorry to hear about your banning. I even posted that you would grace us with your poetry today.

I really should get out of the prediction business.

A job that didn't treat you like a child would be kewl, man. So would a society. Either that, or we just use internet licenses.

I wish someone on this site would have some consistency, especially when the 'no trolling' policy only applies to people disagreeing with right-wing, xion-centric views.

Either that, or we just use internet licenses.

If you think about it, web filtering companies are a form of Internet licence. In the absence of government intervention, these companies are fulfilling people's wishes to have an Internet that is free from filth, hatred and tastelessness. Those web sites that don't meet the minimum acceptable standard effectively have their "Internet licence" revoked when they are blacklisted by a filtering company. In a free market, these companies can only exist because they provide a product that people actually want (and are ultimately willing to pay for). Whether Internet licenses are provided by the Government, or unofficially by private filtering companies, there is an obvious demand for them and they would help to make the Internet a better place.

I wish someone on this site would have some consistency, especially when the 'no trolling' policy only applies to people disagreeing with right-wing, xion-centric views.

For fuck's sake! Read the replies to any of the articles on this site and count how many comments there are that disagree with the article. There's lots aren't there? Since you're reading these comments then they obviously haven't been deleted under the "no-trolling" policy. From which you may conclude that comments that provide an intelligent, eloquent and well-reasoned disagreement to the Adequacy party line don't get deleted under the no-trolling policy. There is no conspiracy!Trust me, you wouldn't want to see the stuff that gets deleted under the no-trolling policy. - love it or leave it.

But you have to admit that there is a difference between buying and installing filtering software on your computer (which is your choice) and having a mandatory licensing test (which would be government's choice). I certainly wouldn't be opposed to individual websites requiring some sort of license. However idiotic it might be, it's still their right.

since they've in the very recent past blocked us from major news sites, technical sites, and other sites that were very relevent to the work we do here. In short, it really doesn't work.

I think the solution though is very simple - setup a DSL or Cable Modem somewhere to act as a proxy. Setup a cron job that reboots daily (to change the IP address). Setup the proxy as That way, we can get around IP bans. If they ban the domain, we log in and change that too. Or we have several at one time - so we can switch without having downtime.

Here's what I just sent them, and I'm cross posting this on GiZ "Why have you classified my weblog as tasteless? My weblot is NOT tasteless, we have excellent taste thank you very much. Who made you the arbiter of Taste anyway? We cater to a very narrow portion of the internet community, we don't advertise, we don't do porn, in short there is really nothing on the site other than personal stories and the occasional parady of, or (which you also at one point mis-classified as tasteless). Kindly remove the pole from your ass, and stop classifying my website at all, for any reason. I specifically forbid your use of my domain in any way in your business. This includes, but is not limited to rating, classifying, or in any way communicating anything negative about my site (of which, you know nothing) to any other party. You do not have my premission to use the name, or terms, Geekizoid,,,, or any subdomain therein in your business without my (the OWNER of such intellectual propery) express written consent. Do I make this absolutely clear? I hope so."

by tkatchev on Thu Jan 3rd, 2002 at 12:58:45 PM PST sprinkle your message with lots and lots of profanity and jokes about anal sex.

Remeber, the cruder and more homophobically erotic your message is, the more seriously it will be taken.

Peace and much love...

It's something like "you can attract more flies with honey than vinegar" (I'm not sure why you'd want to attract flies, and I think you'd attract even more flies if you used shit, but that's unimportant for the time being). My point is, when I mailed them to request that they reconsider their classification of Adequacy, I was humble and polite. After an email like the one you've sent them, you can hardly expect them to change their classification of Geekizoid. Maybe you should have tried being polite first, and then been unpleasant as a last resort? - love it or leave it.
