=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Well, when a company is responsible for every single website their users visit, I see no problem with this. Also, when a manager gets a call from HR that one of their employees has been reported by another employee watching funny cat videos during work hours it tends to create bad work environments. Also, bandwidth is very important, and having it being sucked down by casual browsing can kill a site. Luckily we have some nice QOS devices and good filtering here, but I know there are alot of other companies out there that don't have such nice things. So when Sally Joe in accounting wants to watch her "stories" on Netflix during her lunch hour, your critical traffic is being hampered.
