Remembering when a user had a program that required an updated version of #Python ... so I went to download the updated version. BLOCKED.
What? I contacted IT Security.
BLOCKED as a “porn site”. Apparently, there was a python dot com that was a #pr0n site, so they blocked any URL with “python” in it, including python dot org.
Me: Can you guys take a look at python.org and see that it is not the #porn site?
IT Security: No. The user just can’t use the software until there’s an approved version that ships with the updated Python it needs.
(Sometimes, supporting users means being a user advocate, tilting at windmills.)
