My thoughts exactly, obviously we don't know the whole story but my theory of the situation is this.
You probably talk about conspiracies in the open air at work a lot and you might think you are entitled to talk about whatever you want at work while
in a grocery store, that is simply untrue. It's just like cursing. You're political views and conspiracies and related stuff are offensive to
If this is not the case I'm sorry, but in my experience a simple viewing a website will not cause a management type to freak out, there has to be a
reason behind it.
The thing that would worry me is if you have somewhere in you're contract about not being able to view certain sites, and if they have the right to
ask you to cease if you're browsing a site they deem wrong after it has passed through their filters and had time to examine it. This could be the
case, and if it is my thouts about it are that big companies normally have these policies as to keep there selfs clean from investigations, not
because they are worried what kind of content you are viewing.
It would be because they are trying to avoid investigations, they have to comply with request for information, that requires a staff to work, meaning
more money. Everything comes down to the bottom line with these guys. And that means they know already these sites are being watched and filtered by
the government, If they are filtering for it you can be sure the feds are.
Edit: there are open posts about how they want to overthrow the government here, and to join up for the causes i have seen. That is a very touchy
subject i'd imagine. And in my honest opinion should not be aloud on this kind of site. I'd imagine thats what all the fuss is about.
