Porn streaming sites were accessed from UK parliament 24,000 times in six months, figures have shown.
I'm torn between making a "bunch of wankers" joke and castigating them for being underachievers.
According to the TFA
“There are 8,500 computers on the parliamentary network, which are used by MPs, peers, their staff and staff of both Houses [...]"
There are 153 natural days from June 1st to October 31st, with 24,473 attempts made, so that gives us, let's see, 159.95 attempts per day; now divide that by 8,500 computers and you get 0.018 attempts per computer.
Clearly underachievers. So do castigate them. Whip them into shape!
Ads in web pages. Client side fetches. Tabloid surfing. Nothing to see here.
You forgot the "doing research for the upcoming filtering scheme" excuse.
Why is it so hard to just accept that some people will surf for porn at work? I don't (If I did, I'd use my phone and not get logged). But I have no doubt that many people do.160 daily requests out of more than 8000 computers? 2%... Yup, it's average Joes taking a break on her majesty's dime.
ok but if its my tax dollars being used to fund the behavior, then i want you to hire someone else that understands he can look at porn when he isn't at work.
