This is just a part of the unfortunate tedium you have to deal with when you work for extremely large and professional corporate clients. Reading evolt.org at work is a privilege that I had to request. It's allowed specifically thanks to a firewall policy *just for me*, and it has been made extremely clear that abuse of such privilege can result in instant dismissal. I try my best to filter spam, and thankfully my home accounts are relatively free, but as I have pointed out before, filtering lists like this could cause the loss of valuable information. You might think this is small-mindedness on the part of management, and I would be inclined to agree. However, the benefit is that I can use experience I gain on *really big projects* and feed it back to the community, on the company's dollar. Seb.
