Haven't we been down this read already on this mailing list? Let's create
and use explicit trusted https proxies (if you don't know what I'm talking
about here, make sure you've read some of these megathreads from the past
week). If a corporation wants to force all employees to allow their content
to be filtered, then let them use a group policy to force browsers to
connect via this proxy and configure their firewall rules to disallow
direct access to the internet.
