"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.

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.

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.

I am blessed!

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.

Spastica,

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.
