They almost certainly subscribe to a third party service like Websense.

Yeah. It's websense. They seem to be paying for a product that doesn't work.

My work blocked BGG, and then a week later it wasn't blocked.

I'm guessing that someone with a bit of power in I.T. is a geek.

We ditched Websense a few months ago. For Blue Coat which even blocks me at home. It's awesome.

Look, the economy is picking up. Get a new job that allows access.

My work just did too. After 3 years of not blocking this one game site. Angry people. ESPN is ok,YouTube is ok, but not board games. Gotta love upper management.

Not sure if that picture will stay, but the point is, find a new job.
