Government blocks access to Clean Up ATF
Dept of Justice computers that try to access Clean Up ATF.org now find it is blocked, and get a response designed to be intimidating:
"Please be advised Internet usage is monitored and logged.
This site has been categorized as Government/Legal.
Your IP address is ____________________

If you feel that this site has been improperly categorized please contact your IT Help Desk"
Something like that from Comerade Holder's DoJ? Shocking.

Something tells me that this is going to damage ATF even more because I'm sure if a work computer was being used the input was scaled down. Now the restrictions have been lifted allowing harsher comments to be posted. I'm sure the cyber cafes are going to be selling a little more coffee.

Or there will be people who have their own access (broadband card or built-in).

I can confirm it is NOT blocked on State Dept computers.

I used to work for AIG, Inc. and all firearms manufacturer's websites were blocked by firewall per company policy back then.
I had to stick to Wikipedia and the gun blogosphere on my down-time on night shift to read up on firearms topics and related military history stuff.
