how the fuck would you know? Me, I know for a fact, so shut you pie hole
go and find your work's internet usage policy and come back to me
I think you'll find that in the real world (of which clearly you have very little experience), there is something of a dichotomy between the official hard line stance of a codified policy and the reality of the situation. It's very unlikely that- so long as it doesn't hamper productivity- an employer will bring disciplinary action to simple browsing of the internet. However, if they caught you looking at tits, then it'd be an entirely different matter. Pornographic material is simply not acceptable in the workplace. The odd post on a football forum is fine, provided that the task in hand is also completed to a satisfactory degree.
I've worked in 5 different companies with workforces of 5, 15, 50, 300 and 10's of thousands. So take your 'experience' and fuck off, I know what I'm talking about
Also did you ignore someones very good point about being able to use the net in their spare time (ie lunch) but not being able to look at naked women?
No, they said they could use the net for personal reasons, which is not browsing forums, go and read it again FFS
Im sure someone mentioned it but can't be arsed to look through the thread. Anyway, what if someone has permission to use the net for what they like in their freetime other than looking at tits?
Jon's point is perfectly valid. I know that on my lunch break I'm allowed to do whatever I like- within reason- online with my boss pottering around the same room. He's seen me on toontastic. I do, however, know that if I had porn on my screen, he'd be less than impressed.
did I say anything about lunchtimes FFS?
and again, it's not porn. Would you get sacked for looking at page 3 on your lunch break?
He has a point there. If you class that picture as porn then you have led a very sheltered life. I`m sure if a boss saw that on your screen but you explained it was on a football site there would be no disciplinary action taken. I certainly wouldn`t take any on my staff. You see worse in FHM and Zoo these days don`t you.
Personally I think it was just an excuse to get rid of you mate.
