Action 1: Should not be blocked
Current Category 1: Racism and Hate
That's right, campers. There are some people who are sending the URLs of sites critical of the Chimperor to spam blockers, and getting them to be mislabeled and banned by them. I wonder who would do a thing like that?
I would think that some of those recently downsized discouraged workers might find the time to check this sort of thing out, and help correct any errors. After all, once you establish that you aren't trying to game the system, your opinion might be given a bit of weight from time to time.
On the flip side, once you establish your trollery it will hound you all the days of your (cyber)life. As it has always been, your word is your bond. Try to set the record straight. Maybe BushFlash will still be blocked by Websense. But it won't come up as being a site about hate. It's not much - then again, it's always been the small wins in life that have brought me the most reward.
