    Hi.

    I have made this point before, but apparently to no avail :(

    Broadcom: Posting important notices on box.com instead of your own domain is neither professional looking, nor useful!

    My company and several others BLOCK box.com and many cloud storage sites as a precaution against trojan payloads, and there is NO discussing with the IT leadership about this. Why would you need a third party cloud storage service for a bit of text ???

    Thanks.

    Pro Tip: I will NOT respond to PM asking for help unless there's an actual reason to keep the discussion off of the public forums!

    "Efficient Solutions Monthly Magazine" says: These contain very good advise on asking good questions. No, you do not need StackExchange for Automic, but asking questions the right way never hurts:
