      Websense. A few years ago, I was a contractor on an Army project, and they were just starting to use filtering software at our building. They used Websense, and the language quoted above sounds very Websense-ish. Though the government does tend to do things in a very back-assward way when it comes to bureaucracy, I'm willing to wager that the entire DoD is on the same page not only with the web filtering, but also with the web filtering product they use.

      •  Yes it is websense (none)
        but websense is kind of a pluggable engne that can work with various network appliances and I am not sure which of those they may be using over there. In any case, this diary is much ado about nothing. These are the same kind of people that think since their work blocks travelocity.com or orbitz, it is a grand scheme to keep them all there working and give them no chance to escape.
