Yesterday I wanted to trackback my latest post How to reduce your email load to my company’s intranet. To my surprise my Blog is blocked by my company’s externally hosted web filter. It is categorized as “Gaming” / “Low Risk”. My company for good reasons blocks this category.  But how could this happen? I’m not into GAMING, GAMBLING and LOTTERIES, I never made it to WIN A JACKPOT?

It looks like that my article Gamification vs. Gaming is the cause.

Gamification is the use of game thinking and game mechanics in non-game contexts to engage users in solving problems” — Wikipedia

I submitted a change request. Lets see how flexible they are.
