Warning: the content of some links below may contain offensive language.
information security is breathing down my neck because of the *non-business language* in some recent nodes. today with We blame tye. (summary: change your password if you're paranoid, there was a security problem last night), and earlier with this one with a four letter word in the title. (an perl interpreter for Brainf***.)
let's just hope they don't read Professional Employees and Works for Hire or i could be in *REAL* trouble!
seriously, though. the author of the first post used a readmore tag, with a warning beforehand, which shows consideration, and i thank him. unfortunately, i selected the node from Newest Nodes (as is my morning ritual,) thus bypassing any warning i might have seen had i instead browsed Perl Monks Discussion. and with such an innocuous title, how should i have known?
i've smoothed things over with my supervisor, and info security--for now. i showed them that this is first and foremost a forum for perl, and that offensive language is occasional and not the norm. i stated that i have never intentionally or otherwise posted offensive or defamatory language, and continue to use this site for professional development. i showed them how to use super search and view my posts from my homenode or perl monks user search.
i don't expect all users to have the same restrictions (on content, etc.) that i do in participating here. i never expect my thoughts or ideas should count more than others. so i ask: is there something more i can do to minimize my exposure to *non-business language*? i asked info security, and they said to do a better job of filtering out content before reading it.
huh? i left it there, because i wanted to get back to work, but how can i be satisfied with that response? i ask for your comments and suggestions.
