Is ARRSE invisible on the WWW?

Fellow Arrsers, like many I am working from home at the moment and using a Company VPN.

I work for a huuuuuge, global company, and the IT bods have decided that all non-essential electronic traffic is to be temporarily cut down, presumably to save on bandwidth.

They have blocked video conferencing, you tube, and pretty much every website you can think of that has any form of embedded video playback, as well as the usual ones which are permanently blocked, like porn and game sites and the like.

They have blocked news sites, sports sites, and news paper sites. Even the BBC.

Yet... they missed this site! I am happily posting this whilst I should be working (as usual).

So what makes this site so sneaky beaky that it hasn't been added to the culled list yet?!

The illuminati control this site, that's why.
 
This site is arrsential.

Your IT department is either; staffed by ex services or they're biffs and don't have a "Who is the biggest skiving **** going by his internet browsing history" competition.

In reality they're probably using a template provided by their outsourcer/AV provider - this will cover the usual suspects and arrse isn't going to be the biggest user base.

I suspect that some members of the board, and senior shareholders are Arssers themselves, and have seen military service, have a robust sense of humour, appreciate the magnificent boost to the nations morale that these threads afford the mental well being of its contributors................ or, somebody screwed up,

Obviously your huuuuuuge global company realise you are trying to waste time on arrse, Instead of doing the job they pay you for. I on the other hand use various software to mask by location and get through the various firewalls to waste time at work and get away with it!

My bandwidth, using a VPN (Opera) was affected Mon & Tue this week but wed onwards back up to full steam ahead. So plenty of entertainment in the Robme Household. Can I give a shoutout for the Mandolarian, a Star Wars spin off, which is very good.
 
My local hosptial blocks Arrse which is most annoying with having to use wifi there due to lack of 3G/4G signals getting through
 
Ive told you all before im sure

A previous Aviation sector employers IT dept had an over enthusiastic sweary / that's porn filter

As such important documentation such as PDF files for Turbine Inlet Temperatures (eg BF Goodrich T.I.T PN B2whatever ) frequently vanished into the ether and searching for starting vibrators earned an interview with HR

It was known to throw a wobbler if you wrote Scunthorpe** as well and on one occasion hoe

**Only ever done im sure to annoy IT

...or a major healthcare providor (not NHS). Their software used to block susSEX, BREAST surgery and a whole raft of medical terms that had sexual connotations. Evauation of patients' claims was fraught with issues for some months.
 
I bloody hope it's invisible given some of my 'slightly honest' posts on here.

If not my name is Jemima and I teach in a small school in Edinburgh. Our internet access has just been cut off to avoid spreading the virus, don't contact me.
 
My company (multinational IT) blocked anything with a "military" connection without warning.
We were no longer able to access Arrse, official Ministry of Defence, British Army, Navy and Air Force websites, Jane's Defence, RUSI, etc. As there are a few hundred of us in the Defence sector of this company, it was a little bit inconvenient. I fired off a quick email to the Head of the Defence sector detailing some of the websites that were blocked and he responded by asking why we needed to access military websites.
I pointed out that Senior Management had asked us to keep up to date with developments in the Defence arena so as to identify trends, business opportunities, gaps in capability that could be exploited, etc. Funnily enough, the need to block Military sites was removed.

Normal Arrse surfing resumed. :)

Which game would that be Goats? I hear the plaintive cry from sweating masses of labouring home workers.

Why THIS ONE of course..... :)

Tell the firm you are an E&D advisor, and blocking searches for certain subjects is not allowing you to fulfil your duties. Hopefully they will give up and allow access all areas.

I believe the correct term is "gathering evidence for the dismissal interview".

Makes one muse how competent the Head of the Defence sector is if he had to ask you that TBH. I'd have thought it was blindingly obvious.
