Speaking as someone who works in IT *in* a Government building...


You might want to look up "proxy avoidance and detection".

While it sucks, and I don't really agree with a blanket policy, it is needed. And we are watching. Sorry.

My work just blocked a bunch of websites It's funny, I think they looked at our cookies and blocked each person's most vistied sites. I can't get on the org but everyone else can, my manager can't get on ebay but I can I'm pretty upset about this.

Best part about being a Purchasing Manager, they can't take away my ability to search all websites for parts, services, etc!
