OTOH, we can still access Yahoo or Google while the filter selectively blocks the email interfaces, so I'm not sure why all of sluggy.net gets the boot - but there it is.
Unfortunately, my evenings tend to be both short and very busy (including commute and a 9-hour regular workday, I'm gone from home about 13 - 14 hours a day) so I don't have much time to post spec, reactions, etc. on the boards.
