"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 Job of exposing these carpetbaggers.  Onward and upward.

Yes, most days I can be found in my basement staring in vain hope at my pathetic computer screens trying desperately to make a living trading this this openly manipulated market. Why do I do it? Because I could never stand for someone impairing my freedom to choose like that.

Conspiracy-Theorist are a bunch of paranoids that live in denial of the MSM and denounced as illogical. What is BofA afraid of anyway?

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

As a self employed worker I fully understand this as I usually spend about an hour a day on Zero hedge.I would probably fire myself if I worked for anyone else.

I work in the Home Retention Department at BOA.

I check this website every hour, am I the cause?

We are banned for security reasons from websites we can log into for social media, so the rule is don't log in at work.

My guess is some Indian at BOA-India (thats the IT that reads all our emails) spilled the beans on us.

I promise, I never logged in to ZH at work.

Got an Iphone app?

Thanks for the scoop.

Now we know, in addition to being O-Phone's bank, the mgmt is too cheap to hire American IT guys.

Losers!

How to become a greater credit risk to a bank? We want to be blocked, too.

The time is gong to come when everyone realizes we are just a bunch of fucking morons.  What should we do, Walter?  ~~ Fuck it, Dude, Let's go bowling.  "The Big Lebowski."

No surprise to me when Facebook froze out my ability to post (before I de-activated it for good) it was when I posted zerohege articles about the fraud pre-IPO with Goldman & Facebook

Congrats! Shows Zero Hedge is viewed by critical thinkers. We have enough sheep.

The SEC probably has you blocked but not porn sites. You know what their investigating.

"If they aren't throwing rocks at you, then you aren't making a difference."

Martin Luther King Jr. to 4 bruised and disgruntled whitebread Northern college boys who were spending a fully credited "interim semester" registering Negroes to vote in AL.

The road less traveled took on a whole new meaning that day. A powerful cognition was born that day.

The more they come after you, and the harder they hit..... the stronger you become.

Believe that and breathe it in, and you become a very resilient and scary force.

BAC is not important, but I do believe you earned a nomination for a Pulitzer for the write up that you did on the fed buying puts on t-bills.

I love the smell of rejection by the banksters.

Smells like .....

BoC blocks the ability to vent. Now an employee will go postal because the bosses plugged the vent!

BAC reached major resistance today laid down in the 2009 time frame.

I think it was also recently blocked at a company that trades under the symbol WFC.

I couldn't be prouder of you.

pebblewriter's picture

I had the same thing happen to pebblewriter.com courtesy of one bank in particular.  I shouldn't name names, but it might have had something to do with this 3/28 article in which I questioned whether this certain bank would ever reach $35 again. 

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/guest-post-what-do-bankers-dream

It probably didn't help that 3 sessions later the stock did indeed max out at 34.59 and plunged below $30. It took over five months (and QE3) for it to finally climb back to $35 -- where it spent a glorious month (it's taking another stab at 35, closing at 34.96 today.) 

The pebblewriter subscribers who work there have to access the website via smart phones or tablets.  Come to think of it, I think it's time for an update on the stock.

 He was close, real close. I couldn't see him yet, but I could feel him, as if the boat were being sucked upriver and the water was flowing back into the jungle. Whatever was going to happen, it wasn't gonna be the way they call it back in Nha Trang.

I hope you blocked them back.

To be blocked by these criminals is a badge of honor.  Keep up the outstanding work of sticking sharp pointy objects into the TPTB.

What a hoot. BAC afraid of Zero Hedge. The truth hurts. And agree, employees of all banks will now go home and ask "What is all the fuss about this website called Zero Hedge". Think I will check it out. Might need more servers soon Tyler. Love it.

I remember the old  BofA branch on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley before it was turned into a windowless fortress.  Ahh, the good old days!

Time to bust out my ZH t-shirt and head down to the local BOA and trade in my FRN's for as many nickels as they will give.

Have you ever felt so proud getting rejected by the thought police?

When the going gets tough, the tough get popular. I came to zh for a financial education and stayed for the facts-in-your-face realism. If the plan is to get people talking about zh, reading zh, and then talking about what they read on zh, then the plan is going swimmingly. Well done.

FED is the biggest criminal on this planet.
