Sorry for going a bit off-topic here. I normally have no qualm about
including my company email in my postings, it has resulted in some
interesting and useful dialogue since the topic *resembles* my work. But
a story that aired here in Houston yesterday gave me some pause to
think. It told of 3 workers at a midwest company who were terminated for
........ RECEIVING !! ... non-work-related email.

As usual with radio news, few details were provided. Was it spam? Was it
blatant personal mail? I wonder if anyone else has run across this
story. While I don't believe that my own company would be this
arbitrary, one has to wonder ..... if your employer Really wanted to get
rid of you .......
