"As Part Of Our Ongoing Effort To Protect Bank Of America, Zero Hedge Is Blocked"

Tyler Durden's picture


We couldn't have said it better: "Bank of America blocks users from accessing websites that present certain risks to the bank."

Let's see, maybe this will get Zero Hedge unblocked: "Just buy BAC stock. Others are doing it, so you must do it too. And if you buy in the next 5 minutes, you will get one free share for every share purchased!"

... Well, maybe not. 

Does this also mean we are not in contention for the Andrew Ross Sorkin Wall Street-sponsored website of the year award either?... Perhaps we should shelve those Pulitzer dreams too.

Oh well. At least the National Financial Enquirer and other various financial tabloids are still fully accessible at the bank that is best known for the worst M&A transaction of all time - Countrywide Financial. And that whole double bailout thing of course, first of Merrill, and then of Bank of America proper.

The block by BAC is most likely due to the new type of cookies that ZeroHedge began installing in our computers in Oct.  Most "blogs" - especially those with the ability to chat and/or track searches - are blocked by WBSN, one of the leading web security companies. Clearly, BAC has a policy to block employees from viewing blogs, social media, etc. during work hours.  I'm sure BAC blocks FB, too.   

Much ado about nothing, methinks.

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian health officials say 37 people have died from the severe cold spell that hit the country this month.

Temperatures have dropped as low as minus-17 C (2 F).

The Health Ministry said Tuesday that 190 people have sought medical help for hypothermia, of which 162 people have been hospitalized.

That's not bad, really. The Canadian prairies often go below -40F.  It gets so cold sometimes that urine freezes before it hits the ground, and you can't start a car without a block heater.  Needless to say, you don't find hybrid vehicles at any of the dealerships, and it does wonders for extinguishing any lingering effects of Global Warmist brainwashing.  It's also handy for motivating your girlfriend to snuggle.

Yeah, kind of takes the drama out of all of this, doesn't it?

But, it IS interesting that they'd bother to block, as this seems to have the opposite affect.

Perhaps BAC will then start issuing minders so that even when their minions are not there they can be sure they're not undermining BAC's ability to undermine everyone.

Due to the conduct of those assholes at Bank America/Countrywide Pawn Shops, and in defense of ZH, I present to all of you a Powerpoint presentation entered in to evidence in NY State Supreme Court last week, in the case of MBIA v Countrywide Pawn Shops currently known as B of A. I draw everyone's attention to page 102, labelled "Contract Standard v Countrywide Standard", which explains rather simply that the only way B of A would buy back a fraudulent mortgage (almost all of Countrywide's were, according to statistical analysis) was if it met the "Red-Faced" standard, meaning B of A had to be so embarrassed and red-faced, they would re-purchase the mortgage; and it's not easy to embarass B of A.


(page 99 show internal documents defining Countrywide's "Red-Faced" standard)

If the evidence is correct, the mortgages were total fraud - start to finish. My personal favorite, of all the scams, is what Countrywide did with the FICO scores.  The lower the FICO score, the higher the interest rate the borrower paid, but, the higher the score the higher the price when the securitized mortgage is sold. The evidence shows that Countrywide simply lied about all the FICO scores and indicated they were higher than they really were. (Who really put the LIE in Liars Loans?) In the example cited, the borrower supposedly had a score of 722 (as represented to MBIA and the buyer of the mortgage), but when the file was examined, the real score was 688. MBIA sampled numerous files and every single one of them had an incorrect FICO score. Isn't it really pathetic that B of A/Countrywide parade around as a ligitimate business?

I won't disagree, but browsing ZH is probably the most productive thing any of those BAC employees do all day.

Sometimes, you don't need to know a womans name to sleep with her. You can find that out in the morning.

My company would never block ZeroHedge because I own the mothefucking company bitchez!!!

ZH is on my Favorites tab.

Ah, the freedom of being a Boss.

I read ZeroHedge all a Boss!

Well, I'm jealous. The hospital where I work complained I was on ZH during my work hours. I showed them proof it was during my breaks so they blocked the site claiming it was not work related. My husband was so pissed off he bought me an iPad with his bonus money. When they saw I could access the site they changed the wifi password. So I had to get a damn data plan. Now they just sit and seethe and if I take one minute longer on my break or lunch I am written up. Okay so I'm a bit persistent to the point of ludicrous but sometimes you just got to one up the damn sheeple. Pitfalls of the time clocker life.

My bosses NEVER ask me to do anything.

When my evaluation comes around and I don't get a perfect score I will file a grievance because how can I not perform, perfectly, a task I was never asked to perform?

Gotta luv gov't work!

Unfortunately I do have to show up.

At least I have internet.

Perhaps ZH is going to leverage its enviable market position and demographic by offering up a one million dollar Whistleblower of the Year Award for the best insider tip leading to something serious. 

Not that it wouldn't be great for business, of course.

I see you've been junked by the resident bankster. If it isn't a banker it's one of the true believers (Krugman?) who couldn't unravel the contractions in this reply, much less the roots of the GFC and the world monetary system.
