    Just letting you know that firewall at work blocks for the content: pornography. And now I am in trouble with HR. please fix.

    • AFTVnews says:

      Thanks for the heads up. I need to know what software your company is using to be able to do anything about it.

    • xnamkcor says:

      Those lists are handled by the company who does the list/service. “AFTVnews” did not sign up to be put on a “pornography” list.

      Does your HR consist of a human? Or is your HR a completely automated process? If it is a human, you can request they manually review the site. Unless they just want an excuse to fire you, there should be no issue.

  2. Johnny Always Right says:

    When you are at work, work! Then some occasional porn wouldn’t be an issue. HR should give you a couple months off without pay.

  3. Izzard says:

    Spoke to HR, explained what aftvnews is, looks like the process of blocking content is fully automatic based on the category of the website.

    The filter is Fortiguard Filtering
