I was at a job where they didn't care because I only had to be doing something every 15 minutes and anything in between was downtime. I think I'm going to be getting a job as a cable guy which means no posting from work at all!


As long as you get your work done and don't visit inappropriate websites, I've never had a problem with my employees spending time on the interwebs.

My employer isn't smart enough to monitor it, I just delete my history to be safe. :-D

I don't have a job with a computer in front of me, but if I did I'd post like 50 times a day.

Me too :-/
During the baseball season I'd get sacked for either swearing at the computer or yahooing too much. :-D

My job requires me to keep up with popular culture, so I don't even have to bother with clearing my history.

probably...my last job i was there for 3.5 years and surfed all day and never had an issue, and after 8 months at the new job nobody's complained either (in fact whenever i walk by my bosses office he's surfing)

same as others have said, i get my work done and meet my deadlines, so there shouldnt be an issue.

Hmm... What is "laying brick" a euphemism for? :-B

I wish it was a euphemism for something cooler. :,-( :-D

Right, I think a good number of workplaces have been practical in realizing it's a given there will be downtime each day. No need to make everybody fully productive for a full 8 hour day.
