Censored No More

Last week we reported that TalkLeft was being censored--at least at a few law firms that use filtering programs, including the firm of Howard Bashman who writes the excellent law blog How Appealing. He provided us with the name of the company that provides the filtering service to them, we contacted them and they have fixed the problem.

Apparently we were sharing an IP address with another site in the same database, causing an "accidental overblock." The company has moved us to the "news and media" category and modified their database so we are no longer subject to a "sex" block.

We're impressed, they responded quickly and corrected the problem. The company is Websense.

Thanks to Jennifer at Klyjen who has already noted the change and posted it.

If anyone else experiences a block when trying to access TalkLeft, please let us know.
