Not too smart...
Authored by: kevinv on Aug 15, '05 10:03:27AM

A company can pretty much fire you for anything they wish execept the specific discriminations that are outlawed. You don't have to sign anything before they can fire you for abuse of network resources.

Depending on the nature of the company there maybe very good reasons for the lock down. Do you really want the local bank teller using iChat to send your bank account info to an accomplice on the outside? Do you really want a broker using non-recorded IM to communicate insider information to screw over your 401(k) investments?

I don't think this hint is inappropriate, there are legitimate uses for it too, but as an administrator charged with enforcing company policy anyone found circumventing policy will be reported. Firing isn't up to me, but it'd be a likely scenario. User beware of what you do at work....
