oooh yeah, right there

Ontario Government has Staff-wide Crack Intervention, Belinda Still Pokes Back

Let it be known that Captain Obvious paid a visit to Government Services Minister Gerry Phillips' office a few days ago to inform him that Facebook (aka Facecrack) has absolutely nothing to do with work, no matter how many work related *networks* you join. As a result, government offices in Toronto as well as the rest of Ontario are being hit with a ban stick marked with Facecrack's name, adding it to an ever increasing list of banned websites like Youngtwinks, Barnyard Action, and Youtube.

But Facecrack isn't taking this sitting down. Chris Kelly, of Facecrack, has gotten in touch with the Government in an effort to prove Facecrack's usefulness as a communications tool.

Our inside source (we do get those from time to time) informs us that government employees are told to use their computers for work purposes only, and that other services like Hotmail are also blocked. Rightfully so; Hotmail sucks arse. Our source is on the side of "the man", as he/she has never used Facecrack for anything work-ish and can't see how anyone else would either.

I dunno about them, but I mainly use Facecrack as a means to repeatedly poke and get poked by Belinda Stronach. Seeing as she would no longer fall under the ban, I highly recommend you giv'er a poke too. Trust me; the first poke really is the most exhilarating. Once you become a notch in her post, be sure to join this non-work related network. Again, if you can't see the Facecrack links, it means you're not a member yet!
