The End is Nigh

Websense, the auto-website filtering software application that is used to block out all Entertainment, Adult, Music and other "inappropriate" material to cubicle dwellers around the world has done the unthinkable.

The Bleat has been blacklisted.

Apparently, Good Mr. Lileks and his merry band of matchbooks, Jaspars, odd foods and Gnats have been deemed to hot for the office and can no longer be accessed by us foolish mortals....

I'm asking the Blogosphere to do a favor to us poor, downtrodden souls who will now miss their morning fix of wit, wisdom and trips to the Apple store:

Click here to request Websense his site be removed from the "Entertainment" category. This is their online form for such requests. It does require good reasoning or explanations as to why it should be removed from the restricted list, so be creative.

I already used the online form this morning, because they just started filtering the website for The Oakridger, Oak Ridge TN's daily newspaper. Brilliant, folks. I know the news today is more and more entertainment based, but this is ridiculous.

Interestingly enough, none of the Blogger/Blogspot sites are filtered. And Kevin at Lean Left's was filtered, but isn't anymore. So I guess things can change.

As they say, vote early and vote often...
