Schools already block it in Canada, and that's a sigh of relief for bandwidth for our school districts.

My company goes back and forth on this, one day it works, the other day it doesn't... same with blogging sites and personal sites.

Another approach is to set bandwidth limits for each user, or limiting the quantity of data downloadable. I've seen on my screen the message "your allotted bandwidth has expired" or soemthing like that. Going back next day to the same download it worked.

There is software out there, that, installed on company servers, can "customize your web experience" to use soft terms.
