A couple days after discovering that the SiteFilter censorware in use at his hotel was blockign MeFi, Metafilter Matt ruminates on the general suckitude that is censorware, especially in light of the fact that SiteFilter's crappy blacklist is mandatory in the libraries of the State of Georgia.
I tried all sorts of blogs, both new and old, political and tech, but the ones that were blocked were completely random. Like I said before, waxy.org is blocked (screenshot), but similar sites are not. Gawker is blocked (screenshot), but no other gawker media site is (wonkette and gizmodo are fine). Acts of Volition seemed strange to block (screenshot), since it's a pretty tightly focused tech/design blog. On the purely humorous side, Oliver Willis is considered not a "Chat" site like the rest of the blocked blogs, but a "Sex" site (screenshot). I bet the #joiito army is not going to be happy when they hear that Joi Ito's site is blocked (screenshot).Link
