Remembering when a user had a program that required an updated version of # ... 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 # site, so they blocked any URL with “python” in it, including python dot org.

Me: Can you guys take a look at and see that it is not the # 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.)
