    I got this from another forum I belong to ,I want y'all to know that
    Embassey Suites feels websites that are firearms oriented are not welcome. flamingmadf.jpg

    Remember this when traveling!!!

    Embassy Suites has blocked our site (Home at the Range), along with Gun Broker and RangeDay, from their computers in the computer rooms.

    The reason they give is that our sites are "In-appropriate", because we are gun sites!!!!

    I would suggest writing to them letting them know you will not be staying at their motels until this policy is changed.

    I will request the NRA to look into this matter as well.

    I don't care what they do with their own computers. I travel with my own.

    The first suggestion would be OK but the second one not so, in my opinion. Embassy Suites has every right to control their own property, whether or not you or I agree with them.

    I travel with a laptop, so I don't care what the hotel computers allow.

    As a father, I do want the hotel computers to be 'safe' for kids. I am sure the policy makers for the hotel would rather make them 'safer' than have a guest get upset by something they see (I know, it's all politically correct b-s). Plus, they probably don't actually select what is safe, they use a set of software or firewall pre-configured with the parameters already programmed.

    If my laptop broke, I would be bummed about not being able to check the forum. But, I do like Embassy Suites, especially their breakfast.

    I feel for you, as you probably wanted to log on the forum and were blocked. On the other hand, I understand why they do it.

    I am fine with them as long as I don't see a sign telling my I can't stay there with my firearm.

    blah
    It sounds like I got my Laptop just in time :D


    Anyhow, I wonder if they took the time to block out all the Porn sites as well as other In-appropriate sites?

    I believe y'all who think traveling with your own computer will suffice may find this to be untrue if you are using ES's internet connection. It isn't about having your own computer, but your own internet service on your own computer.

    Such sites (and others) are likely filtered via their internet software and as such, you won't get it on their service without going through something like an clandestine surfer program.

    I have never had any trouble checking forums using my laptop. I don't think our site was specifically selected, but rather because it has the word 'gun' in the URL.

    Luckily, Embassy Suites is a shit hole, and I don't use their hotels.
