Birmingham City Council have responded to my e-mail to them in response to the story about their seemingly unprofessional and possibly illegal approach to blocking websites dealing with Atheism and new age Neopagan religions:
In their omnipresent wisdom Birmingham City Council have decided to block their staff from accessing websites dealing with Atheism and new age Neopagan religions. As an IT professional who has done policy work in this area from both sides of the issue I was intrigued by this story. Reading the BBC’s report left me with some questions to ask. So I did. This is an e-mail I have sent today to Birmingham City Council via their website.
