choongiri writes: "The Government of Ontario has blocked access to Facebook for all government employees. Since Tuesday, any employee trying to access the site has instead received an "access denied" message. According to Government Services Minister Gerry Phillips, "Our IT (information technology) people are pretty broadly familiar with the marketplace and they said, `Here's a website that's going to be increasingly more popular for the OPS (Ontario public service). Is this an appropriate website to be spending time on?'" MySpace has not been blocked."
