No - not without some high level intervention at the registry and seeing as
they are in the US under US law, it's not very likely to happen (freedom of
speech/press, etc.). You could also set the firewall policy company wide at
the network distribution point (where the Internet comes into the facility
from the outside). But, that's censorship which I don't support except in
rare cases.
