From: Rob K
For : The Editor (for publication)
Subj: Aardvark! You're a Banned Site!

Did you know that WebSense bans your site as an advertising

I'll tell you what! If it weren't for the fact that
selected individuals here could circumvent the filtering
services, we'd be totally out of business!  It's SCREWY!

Example:  Shopping isn't allowed on our network.  Ok.  So
we're a logistics organization.  How am I supposed to get
information to do purchases if I can't go to a vendor
website and get information?

Two Specific Examples:
  1. Kmart.com is blocked, but Walmart.com isn't.
  2. OfficeDepot.com is blocked, but office.com isn't (which leads you to other office supply vendors).
I don't know bubba. Could it be there are competency issues? If I did stuff like this to my customer base, I'd be out of a job! Rob K Baton Rouge, LA From: Ian For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: International directory scams Not so very long ago, I received a form from an organisation like this, unsolicited, who wanted a detailed biography for a directory they were publishing. Apart from the usual stuff (name, address, occupation, qualifications, etc.), they also wanted my mother's maiden name. If I wanted a copy of the directory, I also needed to supply my credit card details. So, they would have my name, age, address, mother's maiden name and credit card details. At best, enough for fraud. At worst, enough for identity theft. Surprisingly enough, I didn't return the form. Enjoy the rest of your day. From: Philip Lindsay For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: A fool logging on every minute & someone's selling shares... Hee, hee. Is it a coincidence that from today's Aardvark the following quote is possible? "As they say about fools -- there's one logging on every minute :-) Wanna Buy My Shares In 7am.com?" I leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide... :-) I couldn't possibly comment. Aardvark
