"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.

Great, I love being blocked from those criminal banksters. Their employees don't deserve to have the most accurate up to date worldwide economic, financial, and geo-political information delivered free of charge from Zero Hedge. Fuck Em.

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.

I'm with you Max. Sometimes I think I should block myself from ZH too. Like keeping that bag of Lindt truffles on your desk all the time...a little too tempting and distracting is the truth.

But then again I just can't get enough of ZH & Lindt balls. Yum yum.

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.

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

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.
