I take it your IT department are not Dodge fans.
When a company or it's IT department uses 'hacking' as an excuse for this, it tells me clearly that either -
a) They have absolutely no idea what they're taking about.
b) They enjoy having 'control' over they're employee's content.
c) They don't want they're employee's 'surfing' on company time.
Either way, it's a very sad mentality for any organization to have. Forums like this are not hacking and they certainly do not have content worthy of censorship. If it's the surfing thing, they might want to consider how they treat/communicate with their staff, and how they measure productivity.
I say all these things as an employer that has to deal with these very issues. I do not have a problem with the staff in my workplace AND I do not deny them access to their favorite forums during business hours. As long as they get their job done, done right and in a reasonable time frame......happy boss!
I do however deny myself the privilege of surfing the Z at work, as I know that it would interfere with my productivity so I try to set a good example.
