So, I haven't been able to read HBO at work for about the last 3 years, the Barracuda filter picked up on the word "Halo" i guess and blocked it b/c of "gaming." I wonder how long it will take for "Destiny" to be associated with gaming, and it gets blocked as well?

My company recently installed some ridiculously restricted filters. It looks like all bungie.org sites are filtered as "social network". It's a good thing this forum works well on my phone. :)

Years ago (around Halo 3 launch time) my company blocked most all Halo sites.

Working in IT, I got to know the lad in charge of the filters/proxies. He had just bought a 360 and was looking for game suggestions. I got him playing H3, and it didn't take long for him to fall in love with the franchise. I made sure to casually point out to him that many usual Halo sites were blocked.

Shortly thereafter, those sites were no longer blocked, and remain open to this day.

We use barracuda here too and it is blocked for me :(

The really sad part? I am one of the admins here and I'm not allowed to unblock it.
