Was checking my meagre site statistics this morning and found the line below from the ‘Block options’ menu on someone’s web server.

A quick WHOIS IP check later and got the following report. The Web server in Question belongs to Environment Canada.

This is quite amusing. I’m lucky if one or two people a week drop by and then move on, let alone read my empty pseudo environmental ravings. I’m inconsequential, irrelevant in the scheme of any greater debate on anything, yet is this blog now blocked by Environment Canada? I’m amazed they even bothered to look.

Maybe they just block blogs as a matter of policy. That is more likely. Well it won’t make much difference to my non existent readership.
