Welcome to the blog they're trying to ban

Added on the 16th Mar 2009 at 2:34 pm

We've just heard, from what is normally a reliable source, that the Orange Rag blog has been effectively banned within the corridors of a certain large legal IT supplier (no names, because we can't believe anyone would be quite so stupid) because we've been found guilty of publishing too many inconvenient truths. Apparently no emails have been sent out for fear of them ending up on our desk but managers have been told to point out that any stats of browsing on the site will be ‘career limiting’.

Of course, if this story is true, what is probably the most worrying aspect is an IT supplier seems to have overlooked the fact that it is still possible to surf the web from outside of work. Home computers anyone?

    Welcome to China.
    You may want to tell your readers that one of the ways of continuing to enjoy your blog, without ruining their chances of paying the mortgage, is to use of the anonymous proxy sites. There are several of them out there and they are very popular on the other side of the bamboo curtain.

    But Charles the LTI blog is banned in our home, for fear that it might encourage the children to embark upon a career in Legal IT….

    Inconvenient truths are usually fine. They should act as a reminder that there are paying customers out there that still care. What's damaging is when to many people with too little knowledge of the matter pile in with unhelpful witterings.
    Do we know if its been banned in both offices?

    Charles – I am surprised that a legal IT supplier has banned access to the Orange Rag – one wonders what they will be spending their time doing, counting their losses possibly!!

    What we need is everyone to post if they CAN get access so we can apply a process of elimination!
