Staff sacked after security sees 'suspect surfer' script of shame

Who watches the watchers?

A friend of a friend was charged with monitoring web access, viewing questionable material to verify it was a breach of company policy and collecting evidence to initiate disciplinary proceedings at a major banking company.

One day he told my friend that he'd discovered a prolific offender. "I can't believe this person. They spend over 6 hours a day surfing porn and don't seem to do any legitimate work. They're done as soon as the request to return a user name for the IP address comes back."

The next day, he was much less excited. "You know that person who was surfing porn 6 hours a day?" "Yeah..." "It was me."
