Time To Find a New Job, One Where I Can Be Trusted with a Computer and Dirty Words

As part of an ongoing effort to make my day at the office exponentially more miserable than each previous day, my employer has upgraded their content filtering software to SonicWall. At any given time based upon content; TtP, Hit&Run, DrugWar Rant, Classical Values, The Agitator, and many more blogs are blocked. It's no doubt the most effective way to filter content at work -- block everything.

If an employer wants to do this, they of course have every right to do so. If I don't like it, I can get a new job (anyone offering?), perhaps one with a more mature attitude towards their employees. However, just because they can do this type of nannying, doesn't mean that they should. It doesn't strike me as an effective way to hold on to young talent, or to promote a happy and productive workforce.
