Just got back from three weeks away, and found that the new site is now blocked at work:

Block reason: Forbidden Category "Games"

So I really shouldn't be checking the site at work anyway, but ... I do. I'm not sure
if this is an issue that is unique to our work servers, or if it's based on a tag
embedded in the forum software.

Not sure if you know the new url? http://forum.language-learners.org/
Does your work also block sites like facebook?

I'm at home, but I'm having trouble with the other site right now. It's really slow and it took me many tries to
even get on the site itself, and now I can't seem to open the thread I want to look at.

It's weird when this site is the faster one.

Oh, and "games" are mentioned in at least one thread. Maybe that's enough to make them block it at your
work?

The other site is painfully slow at the moment. OK, that means I have time to study.

We maintain a Facebook, Vimeo, and Twitter feed, so those sites aren't blocked.

It's definitely the new url that is blocked. The old "Not HTLAL" site now redirects to the
new url. I suspect it's the way our server identifies the new host.

I wonder if it could be related to the hosting? Maybe sharing an IP address with a
blocked site? (I know nothing about website hosting so this might be a nonsense
suggestion)

Or maybe the IT department actually looked blocked this one manually...
