Eye On Miami blocked at County Hall? ... by gimleteye

Apparently a filter inside the county website server is now blocking access to Eye On Miami. The only other place this has happened, to our knowledge, is in Havana. Can any of our county observers confirm?

Genius Said: I was told ANY guest wifi access users at the county are blocked from our blog. We are still running in employee wifi and hardline connections. One of our comments yesterday said our post about the lobbyists yesterday must have hit a nerve. We still need more confirmation about being blocked.

I have a question. Is this the work of Lynda Bell? These things never happen before and since she is the topic most of the time is it her?
The information on the commissioners will continue to roll your way because Genius you have built such a readership and respect this confirms their fear factor. We will make sure someone or somebodies are at every BCC meeting. This is the age of technology twitter and textng.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a high-paying position at Miami-Dade County without having someone pull strings for you.

Once there, it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep your position without "bending the rules" to favor the requests (orders) from the 29th floor.

By law, the Mayor and Commissioners are forbidden from involvement in the day-to-day affairs of the County. So... they send their minions in to see the Dept. Director, who calls your boss, who calls you - and tells you what must be done. Often they slip (on purpose) and say, "Hey, I'm just following orders; it came directly from the 29th floor!"

What is really galling is that Miami-Dade County refuses to enforce laws on its books. The County has an excellent Sign Code but unfortunately Carlos Gimenez refuses to enforce existing laws against illegal billboards and against illegal outdoor advertising. So Carlos gets to decide what laws get enforced and what laws get ignored? Crack dealers get arrested yet Carlos's lobbyist friends get a pass?

the county uses a filtering product called websense. they can add websites to their banned site list at a moment's notice and delete them just as fast.

OK, a few things.

1. County employees, get your own hotspot devise. Go to Best Buy and learn up. Make sure your connection can't be hacked.
2. Don't read EOM during work hours. We pay your salary.
3. Do read EOM every day. You want to make sure you or your boss isn't in there, pretty much.
