Columnist asks readers if they've evaded censorware

Circumventing censorware seems to be going mainstream. "Network World" has a column: Getting around Web filtering:

So, what kind of filtering and for that matter logging does your company have in place and do you and or your co-workers use any of these free public proxies to circumvent them? If you are on the IT management side, do you attempt to block these proxies?

The tone of this column is interesting. It's not the standard kids/porn piece. Rather, it's about (high-status) employees escaping company controls, and is sympathetic to the workers.

There's also discussion that translation systems can act as proxies, and hence are blacklisted.
