Weird, it worked fine for me from $WORK.

But that's another issue, there is emails and personal information there
and we should be more careful with the data and the acl. As said
yesterday in the meeting, we do not all have the same view on what and
how we should treat it, and what we can do and cannot ( and lots of
details point ).

Again, the issue ( for me ) is not the pages, it is that I would have
prefered to know they existed and that they had to be updated.
