    One assumes so, however... I for one am suspicious of broad terms that can easily be abused. When I'm at work, with net-downtime, I hit "News, Sports, Weather". That's it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah, I find that alot of right wingers are very concerned with broad terms now that a democrat is in office.

    All in all, this is a stupid non-issue story. I don't want government employees playing games, checking out porn, watching movies or reading up on anything that could be considered "controversial opinion" on my dime. Let them do it at home.

    Re: TSA to Block "Controversial Opinion" on the Web

    The list the memo says are blocked:

    The categories include:

    • Chat/Messaging

    • Controversial opinion

    • Criminal activity

    • Extreme violence (including cartoon violence) and gruesome content

    • Gaming
    I wonder why that list was not included in the OP...maybe because it would make this seem pretty reasonable....

    Now if they were restricting their rights at HOME. Then it would be a controversial situation.

    See - this is the key point. You cruise the net while at work.

    This is why, when I managed, I simply restricted all access - and sports, weather, news - weren't on the list. Only sites directly related to work were permitted.

    While their choice of phraseology was poor, it seems like a reasonable decision. Employees shouldn't be wasting time surfing the net while on the clock anyway.

    I don't really think the words they selected were poor. It might very well describe what they were blocking, say if they were going to block all glenn beck websites and daily kos, which is fine by me, no need to have TSA workers debating on whether glenn beck or kos has it right.

    If I owned a business or ran a department, I would block sites like DP on all computers but mine.
