I have gone back to work in my IT job while I continue to study the market in an effort to become consistently profitable. Would you consider having an option to view the site with a different style, say without the logo in plain text, like a stealth mode?
I am in an open plan office and don't want people seeing what I'm surfing. I don't have local admin rights on my workstation so can't switch off images.

Whatever you do, this site is still going to look like a forum and a difficult one to use at that. And your network admins will still be able to see what site(s) you're visiting if they're using any sort of proxy or traffic monitoring.
You're better off using a smart phone (with a data service if you're concerned about traffic snooping). I'm guessing most people will just assume you're on Facebook or texting.
I am in such a large organization (an Investment Bank) that the network admins don't care. I know they can provide aggregated reports, but I'm not bothered. I do care though that other people can see my screen and what I'm surfing. I could be looking at an IT forum for all they know. If a plain text version of Big Mike would be available I could contribute to it.
A smartphone is a consumer device, i.e. good for consuming content. It is not good for contributing or creating content, so for me not a good solution.
