Blocked, cuz of all the #$%^%^$@!, you ^%#^@*^&!

My wife just emailed me from her work. Apparently, her employer's much-threatened internet-use monitoring program has begun, and when she tried to check Rice Daddies this morning, she got this instead:

Access Denied
The requested document, http://www.ricedaddies.blogspot.com/, will not be shown.

Reason: DDR score = 54. This page will not be displayed because it contains prohibited words or it has exceeded its tolerance of questionable words.

Thanks a lot, a$$h*les! Heh.

UPDATE: Okay, so I googled DDR filtering and found this explanation: "DDR stands for Dynamic Document Review. It is a software filter, which "looks" at all sites before they are displayed on your computer. After the site is compared to the known lists, if it is not found it is scanned and given a numerical "score" based on its content. If this score exceeds a certain threshold, the site will automatically be blocked." So I don't know what her work's threshold number is (or what the fuck it's based on), but obviously, it's at least 54. So what does it mean?

It means this: Day-um, you Asian parents are nasty! Cuz apparently, of all of my wife's usual between-patients mix of parent- and food-blogs, besides RD, only these other blogs got blocked by her work's new internet content filter:

MetroDad, score of 56; Halfmama, score of 100; and Mama Nabi, score of 1-fricking-60! HA! So much for that model minority shit....

halfmama said...

Oh my. I'm blushing with pride. Sorry—fucking pride.

However… MN, you are my hero.

Mama Nabi said...

That won't make my mom jump up and down with pride, will it?
In my f'ing defense, I do have one word that I won't use either on or off the blog... one that would probably shoot my score up closer to 250. Damn. Great, now all the freaking pervs are going to hope to see some dirty writing - it's just a pissy tired-as-fuck mommy's blogsite and trust me, nothing juicy over there. (Hm. Do comments add to the score? If so, I'm sorry that I'm contributing to la dra's inability to check on the RD's...)

I think you're crazy just like me said...

Holy shit...daddies swear? hahaha

Hey MD, my wife says you upped your score to 80 today! :)

And MN, congrats, you're blocked at 213! Heh. Asians.
