@dethos hey I'm a system admin. A recent update blew away ALL custom hostfile changes on my machines, regardless of content, citing malware.

@dethos @Moon my company has forbidden information workers who were granted "local admin rights" on their laptop from editing their local "hosts" file, for about a year. We're locked out of it by a higher local automated authority than ourselves, and IT will not negotiate with us.

In a few years it will be impossible for developers in government contractor shops to do any work at all.

@dethos NOOOOOOOO YOU CAN'T JUST BLOCK OUR PRE-INSTALLED SPYWARE IN YOUR HOSTS FILE
