Apparently, I'm running an alcohol site, which Sprint has deemed inappropriate for all of its employees. Good to know how grown up they are, over there.

chimed in with:
I wonder where they got the idea that your site is about alcohol? Mardi Gras pub crawl, Beer and Buses, Barstool Pictures. Calendar of happy hour, beer university, and st. patty's day. The entire DOTW section (even if it has only had one update in the last year).
It may be dumb but it seems like their alcohol filter works pretty well. ;)
