Some of these confidentiality/security paranoid companies have firewalls 
that prevent employees from accessing off-company communication 
services[1], to prevent employees from using those services to leak 
confidential information.  However, if you work at one of those 
companies, and don't have the skills or means to bypass the firewall, 
perhaps you should avoid posting to nanog from work for anything other 
than to receive help from your fellow netops during emergencies.


[1]  Blocking webmail websites, blocking IM and email ports to 
off-company IPs, etc.
