Some regular readers may know that I used to read John Chow’s blog regularly as it was a nice source of news about blogging and wordpress plug-ins. I have not read it very much lately as it seems like it is just a affiliate marketing site these days so he can sell you… affiliate programs?
Anyway, I was/am taking a small break at work and decided to check it out quick and guess what? The filter here as work blocked it! www.johnchow.com is no longer accessible.
The filter also gives you a reason for a blocked site. Like if I tried to go to a video game site, it would block me and say something like “This site has been blocked for the following reason: Video Game, Gaming News”. At least something like that. Do you know what the message was when John Chow’s site was blocked?
“This site has been blocked for the following reason: Web Ads”
There are now too many ads on the site versus content for me to view it from work. Yikes.
