    Federal Eye - SEC porn scandal results in zero firings, agency says

    Informal counseling? Hmmmm. I wonder if they'll create a new social service agency to deal with porn addiction for overpaid government workers - the PAFOGW. (Uh oh. Hope I didn't give anybody any ideas)

    I believe their punishment was to have their porn collection confiscated by the White House staff for use in an ongoing investigation that will continue indefinitely.

    I'm sorry Ravi. Is USMB a porn site?

    Not that its any of your business but I do not use school computers for anything non school related.

    That is just retarded.

    I can see suspensions as ok, firing is a bit much.

    Really? I think one guy tried to access porn 1800 times. Some of them make over 200K. They should be fired. Certainly the most egregious offenders. Besides that, how dumb are they? They didn't know they could be tracked?

    I don't agree...the company I work for has a ZERO tolerance policy for accessing porn sites on company comuters and/or company time. Which means, that even if you brought your own personal laptop to the office and accessed a porn site during work hours, you could and would be fired. I think it's a good policy. It keeps people from doing stupid shit. It protects the integrity of the company network and it's devices and is a good way to keep employees from wasting company time. They have also blocked access to select sites like facebook and myspace and youtube.

    I'm a bit surprised that our highly technological government agencies don't have site blocks in place as well.

    Really? I've seen you post during the day so I find that hard to believe.

    There's really no difference...doing non-government related things on the clock...doesn't matter if it's porn or USMB.
