I'm working on a software development company. Most of time I spend my time in StackOverflow and other related network sites.
Today I noticed that Network administration has blocked us from login into StackOverflow user accounts. I can't go to login page.
I am allowed only to visit the site as a visitor.
Most of the time I was chatting in chat rooms. They might have tracked this.
should I talk to IT head regarding this matter?
If I do so, how should I justify the reason to be able to logged into the StackOverflow user account?
I feel so frustrated right now.
Should I look for another place? If so, will it be a reasonable fact as a programmer?
Your SO activity, including non-guest activity, is part of your job. If so, report the problem accessing SO just as you would any other network issue affecting your ability to do your job.
Your SO activity is for your own interest and development, not a necessary part of your job. If so, access it from home rather than work.
If you are not sure which case applies, discuss with your co-workers and/or your boss. If you do decide to report it, you should be sure that your boss will confirm your need for SO access if asked by IT.
