Porn!

I am a System Admin, and I recently installed web monitoring hardware. I knew people did it, in fact some staff have been fired for it. But the amount of people looking at porn was a bigger issue than I first thought. IMO porn is to be used in private, at home when the missus is out.

Be honest - do you have a quick look at work?

Re: Porn!

A couple of people got fired from my work last week for spending too much time on the web (3 hour average per day active use).

No-one would be daft enough to surf for porn, and anyway it would be too hard to hide your screen at all times.

A receptionist once sent one of my colleagues a mucky picture asking if he wanted to do 'that' to her She was a stalking nutter though, so she got the sack too!

I used to work in a lovely old building which had a couple of old cellar rooms. One Christmas a couple of colleagues took advantage of the stillness and quiet therein....Needless to say further Christmas parties were banned at work ! It would appear the "hands off" approach has driven the seekers of thrills to the internet. But what would I know I don't have the internet at my work
Mind you...to meet the lass who worked the photocopier always bought a flush to my face

Wave Re: Porn!

You'd have to be fairly daft to surf for porn at work..........but I know at least 2 such folk
A mate of mine ran up a £1800 phone bill downloading porn and music while working for a major shipping line.......he was fired and it played a major part in his divorce...........unbelievably his mother paid the bill as she is convinced her lad can do no wrong
The other bloke got the boot from IBM...you'd think he'd know better really,given their image of high morals.

Leave it alone at work......drive home at 120 mph,red in the face like I do instead ...........( )

Re: Porn!

Isnt it amazing how none of you have actually answered the question yet.All of you are going the long way round it.Funny.

Come on,fess up if you have or have not.Dont tell me that none of you have never ever in your life looked at some porn on the web,whether it be from a work P.C or your home P.C

Me personally,I dont and have never used a work P.C to look at porn,I dont like the idea of being fired for something that I can do when I am in my own home.

And aswell as that,its my work place and I have to respect fellow employees and my bosses too(I have 5 different bosses).

I work for Esat and B.T Ireland as a telecomms/fibre optics engineer,they have firewalls and servers installed,so you cant even recieve an email from an external source,let alone surf the web for porn on a work P.C.

So come on and answer the question directly and none of this going the long way round the subject.

Re: Porn!

I can honestly say - nope, never have, never will - unless you count ogling pictures of the new Brera, that is!

I can't imagine how you'd ever be able to face another interview after getting the sack for surfing porn at work - "and why did you leave your last job, sir?"

Although it does appear that some at work do, since we recently had a "before 8am" and "after 6pm" Internet ban put in place.

This hacks me off a little, since rather than confront the individuals concerned they just put a blanket ban in place. Spineless management, IMHO!

Re: Porn!

I did it to try to get sacked from Bloomberg TV. I would even leave the stuff on the screen over lunch and nobody bloody fired me even with the web monitoring software. I then started downloading Flash movies of the minced frog variety and after a couple of weeks my internet access stopped working.

By this time I had handed in my notice!!!

Re: Porn!

Well you can't view the internet in most police stations here because there is no connection at all. However I was once working in a computer office which was connected (also in the police) and lewd sexist cartoons etc were being printed off and posted in notice boards / computers all over the place. I had to put my foot down and ban all such activity - as well as dumping all existing offensive material.
There was no problem after that.

Re: Porn!

I think I hit yes - I am looking for another job by accident. It is pure coincidence that I AM looking for another job and meant to say no.

I was a sys admin too, and cannot believe what people would have on their PC AND network storage in public drives. I think some people are going to get fired to be honest. Investigation was being done much higher up than me though, so I am glad I am out of it!

Re: Porn!

As the manager I can surf for whatever I like as my bosses would have to come from overseas to check me out.............however ALL porn sites are censured in this country by the service provided so you can't go there anyway

Is it the porn that is the issue here or the amount of time and resources wasted while surfing for it?

Re: Porn!

I don't look at it at work.
I also don't look at it at home. My 3 year old son plays on this PC and I don't want him coming across some Temp file or something with stuff like that.

Anyway...I'm too vain and reckon I'm good enough to get the real deal rather than look at pics...let alone PAY for it

Re: Porn!

I'm not a prude, but I do think that Porn is one of the biggest factors in the "moral degradation" that is abundant worldwide today. Not even mentioning the contribution to child trafficing etc.
I truly believe that porn should be banned completely. Nowadays you don't need a PC or the internet even. Anyone can get porn on their cellphones !!. There is no control over who downloads what, or questions asked about age.
Or maybe I'm just a sad git with no life
My cars are enough of a turn-on to me anyway

I've never looked at Porn at work, but then I couldn't anyway - I'd just get a big 'Access Denied' page instead.

Do people really not realise how easy it is for them to tell what you've been up to?

I wish I had the time, but unfortunately in my work I dont.

Besides, Im as good as a system admin, I have access to all admin rights at my place and get on well with our system admin (skippy) as well as help him out on occasion, so I guess if I did I would get away with it

I have on one occasion searched in groogle for an electronic component (buyer by trade) by part number and by manuf. name, and was greated with a pron website as the top result, I was soo proud I had to show it off to my coleagues including my boss

Re: Porn!

Doubt if you are offending anybody, if they are stupid enough to do porn at work, they probably are too stupid to realise they should be offended anyway

Cheers,

Re: Porn!

I agree in these times surfin anything "dodgy" at work is asking for trouble. And to answer the question, no I don't, I have to watch enough of it at customers sites, and in most of Europe.. well every where but in the UK its hard core stuff, and some of it is not nice... and very off putting while your configuring a system and there's a big monitor above your head playing it!!

Re: Porn!

In my office porn get's mailed around between collegaes. The women even join in too. I mostly find the pictures disgusting and can't understand why this should be shared with other employees. But then again I live in The Netherlands...

BTW: over here it is forbidden for an employer to check e-mail. Privacy issue, well protected by law..
