  1. I am not the only one......

    X-No-Archive: Yes


    I am only the only one out there that advocates listening to radio,
    either online or over the air, in defiance of the boss. I was driving
    today through the eastern USA, tuning through the local stations, and
    I actually heard one radio station advocate listening to their online
    simulcast, in defiance of one's boss. And one DJ even said to use a
    proxy server to cover your tracks. There is nothing in the FCC regs.
    that prohibit a station from advocating listening from work in
    defiance of the boss or giving info on how to do it. So neither the
    station, nor the DJ, were violating any laws broadcasting such
    information, as there is no FCC rule against it.

    And he's not the first over-the-air personality I have hears advocate
    that. Some years ago on the West Coast, there was one sports
    personality working two jobs. One of them was his sports talk show in
    the evening, the other was an office job during the day. This
    personality some years ago advocated using open proxies, becuase he
    was doing this from his other job, to look at sports websites and get
    ready for what he was going to talk about on his radio job that night,
    and he once boasted that the boss as his OTHER job would NEVER catch
    him, becuase he was tunnelling out to his cable modem connection, on
    what was then known as @Home, to get to the sites he needed to access
    to get ready to go on the air that evening. He boasted some years ago
    that by using an encrypted tunnel, the boss at his day job would NEVER
    know what he was up to becuase the traffic outbound to his @Home cable
    modem service was encrypted, and, therefore, could not be interecepted
    by the network admins at his day job, and they would never know he was
    looking at sports sites, in defiance of company filtering policy.

    IN short, there are others out there that advocate listening from work
    in defiance of the boss. I am not the first, and will likely not be
    the last.

    you do know that if you sign a workcontract you agree with the company
    policy
    and if you do this ... you breach contract and thus are a target for
    judicial punishment. and if you are a USA citizen that's usually very costly

    At least in Germany the work contract doesn't even need to explicitly cover
    this. For slight violate of the implicit trust agreement to do your work
    properly you receive a warning, and the next time you get busted you're
    fired. For strong violations the warning can be omitted.

    Just in recent case at a building company the computer of a worker was found
    to contain a lot of pornography. But not just that, he used paid overtime to
    do the work that should have done in his normal time. He never got any
    explicit introduction to the computer, and neither any policy regarding
    computer usage. And Germany in quite lax in that way, it is commonly agreed
    that unless it has been explicitly forbidden, a small amount of time on the
    net for purely personal stuff has to be tolerated.
    Now what he did was strong violating the trust, and thus his firing without
    any warning was judged as legal.

    There are many people in this world who advocate breaking the law or
    violating company policy. That does not excuse the act itself, or advocating
    the act.
    If you violate company policy, you deserve to be fired. If you steal from
    the till, that is still stelaing even if somebody advocates it, and even if
    you can not be detected. If you waste your time when you should be working,
    that is stealing, in a different form. If you prepare for job #2 on hours
    you are paid for job #1, that is stealing.

    There will always be dishonest people in the world. None of them would last
    a week working for me. I don't need policies and filtering to make dishonest
    people less dishonest. I simple know what my employees are doing hour to
    hour, and I know how much work to expect of them in a shift. If they exceed
    expectations, they can have time to play.( I prefer they go home early to be
    with their families rather than do something at work which they won't/can't
    do at home) If they play first and don't produce, I would know very quickly
    and they would be gone.

    On the matter of firing for cause, minor violations require 2 warnings, and
    firing on the 3rd offence. Major items allow for instant dismissal.

    Doesn't matter if you can do it undetected, it is still wrong.
