Potentially Legit!

Once again I have received a notice that one of my readers was blocked by his employer’s web monitoring software, which prevented him from getting an early scoop in re Biden’s V.P. choice (missed it by this much[1]). This was not the guy working at a public school that I already knew was blocked.[2]. So, alarmed, I checked to see if I could find evidence that a Russian Troll Farm has used my domain for nefarious purposes. Nyet, as far as I can tell.

Notes

  1. The shocking scoop was just a bit wide of the mark. [^]
  2. I’m pretty sure he considers it a perk of the job. “Dang, Steve, I’d love to read about your bizarre Queen Elizabeth II infatuation, but our librarian Mrs Grundy, when she’s not banning books like Red Badge of Courage, turns the dial up to 11 on our web filtering software. It’s such a shame. I’m sure you nailed the whole ‘Charles Dickens on acid’ thing.” [^]
  3. I’ve do have suggestions for album names. Most of them include the word bastard, of course. [^]
  4. I have highlighted “Personal websites (such as blogs, portfolios, etc) do not need HTTPS connection[s]” because I am aware that Googly and Micro$lop and other web behemoths often flag links to unsecure (unencrypted) web pages as “suspicious.” At least in part this is in keeping with their desire to have all “homegrown” websites moved to their monetized and strip-mined (for exploitable data) servers.
