"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.

I'd fight Laurie AND Cathy at the same time.

~"Laurie Readhead, his replacement, most recently was in charge of consumer bank efficiency efforts and divestitures. She will report to Cathy Bessant, head of global technology and operations"~

So it begins, and we see where the real investigative journalists are. I am sure they are not the last who will add you to the "enemies" blacklist.

Congratulations, Tylers. You continue to be the best of the web, and continue to piss off all the right people.

Funny, considering I used to see that shitty criminal institutions ads/banners in the column and header space on Zerohedge... talk about a one way relationship

It seems to me that BOA employees are likely to have smartphones. The bank's employees will naturally want to see what they aren't supposed to see. This just establishes that the BOA management are bunch of half-witted jackasses. Go Zerohedge!

That's right.  A whole bunch of mid and lower level employees who never heard of Zero Hedge will now be curious. 

Welcome, all BOAML employees!  

However, be forewarned - once you jump down the rabbit hole, you can never unlearn what you discover here.  Turn back now, or risk your mental well-being.

Is this limiting "free speech" of ZH?  (Well some of the comments may include some "swear words" occasionally, so it should be rated as PG (which stands for "pretty good").  Hat's off Tyler .... you wildman!

Well, let's say, not in the entirety of the capitol.  Nor yet in beta stations in the Rockies.

ZH is only doing good job and reporting correctly. Tyler is a real true person though I have never met him. FED+BOE+ECB+BOJ are the biggest manipulators and JPM +GS +20PD's act on their behalf in this Ponzi Casino. It is all rigged Ponzi Casino. JPM & GS do maximum manipulations from London as no regulators are looking what is going on daily. London is the best place to manipulate Ponzi Casino as no regulators as they are watching porno. Manipulations of highest order without any regulations as every one has been purchased and regulators watching porno. In last 10 trading days, Rio Tinto manipulated by +25% gain and regulators watching porno. JPM doing it. It is just Casino and nothing else. Regulators are watching porno, don't know how Rio Tinto is manipulating daily. On LSE, there is no checks and balances and maximum manipulations daily by Rio Tinto. The market is Casino and the biggest manipulated stock is Rio Tinto and JPM is pulling up daily and no regulations for Rio Tinto in London
