Discussion Action
==== Dans Guardian ==== I have heard several complaints about dans guardian. I tried to get to CNN.com or deseretnews.com and all of the pictures are broken. I think that it really slows down access to everything too. Do we need this in the department when the university does filtering?

We are using our own filtering that is separate from OIT's filtering. We have the freedom to set our own policy.
