Report to your ISP that regular access to several Gopher Sites are required in 
the performance of your business.  Also tell them that this is a normal Port 
that has been in use by Government and Educational servers for two decades.  
Not only is Port 70 discussed in RFCs, but has been officially assigned by 
IANA.  Therefore, as this is a normal part of Internet traffic, they need 
to keep the port open for your access, just like Port 80.

God I really wish my firewall didn't block the gopher port... *sigh*
I know there is an gopher browser site out there that runs out of a
web page, but it's just not the same...

Anyone out there have a really good reason or excuse you think i could
lie with and somehow convince
my IT department that I need it for business purposes :) hahaha
