Posted by on Saturday, November 02, 2002
Playboy.com, the web portal associated with the famous men's magazine, suspended 35 staffers after firewall monitoring and network scanning revealed that the employees had residual pornographic photos in their browser caches.

Joining the roughly 30% of U.S. companies that have formally disciplined employees for innappropriate Internet use related to pornography, Playboy.com announced its zero tolerance policy for porn surfing.

"Surfing for pornography creates an atmosphere of intimidation and harrassment for employees, many of whom may be reluctant to actually say anything about it." said company chairwoman Christine Heffner.

"The problem came to our attention when some of the models complained of male staffers learing at them during photo shoots. We installed scanning software on the network, and found that some staffers indeed had pornographic material on their computers."
"We've taken the steps required to make Playboy.com a safe, comfortable environment for everyone to work at."

Alex considered appealing to a higher court, but decided to settle after counsel predicted a low probability of the court buying the story, either, citing as "contemptable and frankly, not very funny" the admin's attempt at a cover up by actually posting a satirical piece about the web site in question.
