UPDATE: Attention, Federal & Other Sources, Readers, Pls. DISREGARD yesterday’s WSJ Advice

By Debbie Schlussel
Yesterday, I posted advice from the Wall Street Journal on how to avoid being detected from contacting me and visiting this and web-based e-mail sites from work. I thought it would help the many federal agents and employees who contact me and are afraid of getting caught.
Well, based on all the e-mails and comments from those sources and others, the best advice is to disregard what the Wall Street Journal says and only contact me away from a computer other than your employer’s. The WSJ advice and counsel on how to do so from work won’t work, and you’ll be caught. That’s the general consensus, and it appears many will get in trouble, as yesterday’s Wall Street Journal article was that paper’s most e-mailed and clicked-on article, yesterday.
Here’s more from one federal employee reader:

I work for Defense Information Systems Agency, this is basically an IT shop of all sorts for the Department of Defense. Deleting information about internet activity on a users computer will do people no good at all. The routers and firewalls that users have to go through to access the internet track every site that users visit. Users can do nothing to erase their tracks from this type of logging. I can guarantee you that every site that people that work for the gov’t are being watched closely in everything they do.
All I can say is that folks that have been warned need to take heed.

Good advice. Better to contact me from a library or Kinko’s or home.

Marcy will never block DS from the BLOC computers. KMA (Kiss Marcy’s Ass) HMFIC EVS has been given a lifetime pass to post from his ICE computer by Julie “Diet Coke” Meyers.

J,
Most of your posts, or probably all of your posts say nothing, shy of feeble attempts to poke fun at the Sheepdog. Didn’t your momma ever warn you about teasing that big dog next door? LOL
Reminds me of a little story?
J Leyn and another agent from Jacksonville were standing on the porch one day watching the Sheepdog lick himself where only a big dog can.
After a while J Leyn said to his buddy, “I sure wish I could do that”.
J’s buddy said “You better pet him first, cause he’s gonna BITE YOU”.
Look both ways before you cross the road J,

J (not much of an investigator) Leyn,
I’ve told you over and over again that I’m not a SSA at the BLOC. Can you even read? Fill in the blanks: J Leyn is _ _ _ _ as a stump. LOL
If you know who I am, say it!
