"Specifically, there have been instances of employee and contractors accessing websites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit images."These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and regulations, consume network resources and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code."
Employees at the Missile Defense Agency at the Pentagon have been warned to stop viewing pornography on the government dime and on government systems!
The memo from the Executive Director warns that appropriate action will be taken agaisnt employees who continue to watch porn at work.
Okay, first of all, who watches porn at work? Seriously, it seems so stupid. What the heck are people designated with protecting the United States form missile attacks doing watching porn? Surely if they do not think that is not appropriate, than what are they doing there in the first place?
Sure there is something Freudian about Missile Defense Agency employees viewing porn. It must be a very boring and tedious job sitting around watching missile alerts and other monitoring systems that do not activate. No cold war, no heightened tensions. That said they have to be diligent!
Imagine missing an incoming attack because the person responsible was watching the Playboy network!
Under the career section of the website it states that the "Missile Defense Agency is assembling a team of career professionals to develop and deploy one of the most challenging and advanced technological undertakings since the Manhattan Project"
