As added back ground the computers are mod networked.

what kinda pornography?

Is it up to you to fire him?

Go to "iggy" mode.
You should not interfere, enough people have lost their jobs due to credit crunch etc etc...
Just have a 1 to 1 during a break. D'OH

blackmail him for 10 bob a week :thumbsup:

PS unless it's the wrong kind of pornography in which case gimme his address and me n' my mate the "concrete cobbler" will pay him a visit

If it was the "wrong kind" of pornography, I'm sure this thread wouldn't exist as I certainly know what I would do...

if its child porn he should be reported, if its any other porn just be discreet and give him a final warning kinda thing

Was he doing indecent acts at the same time?

Yeah and tell him "to get a life" he knows how to make kids so he sould know by now what it's for and how to use it.

If you're offended by the content, and feel it is an exploitation....etc...then you could have a word with him one last time, that he really shouldn't be viewing that sort of thing at work. If he is not approachable or you feel there maybe some sort of reprisal from talking to him, then it is your call whether you report it or not to higher management. N.b If it is kiddie porn then you really should do the right thing and report him straight away!! Let us know how you get on...:thumbsup:

lol I doubt a person in a high paid position would be looking at child porn at work.
Just record him looking at the porn, then blackmail him. He will soon stop.

Not your problem, ignore it.

This.

This.



Id co-sign this it aint your problem.

but what if its child porn? its illegal and its sick, NEEDS to be reported

I agree, since it's not your position to fire him I think you should just turn a blind eye to it.
Like you said, he's been caught twice before and the network is monitored, if he continues to break the rules, it's only a matter of time before he is caught again.
You needn't get involved.
If you 'grass him in' and some how he stays; there's going to be a bit of awkwardness... lol
Let it fly.

Surely no one would be stupid enough to look at child porn at work, on a monitored network, on their third strike for the same act of misconduct. Also, surely no company would allow a pedophile a second chance let alone a third! We'll have to presume it's 'regular' porn lol

But if it is child porn, then it has to be reported.

erm - how do you know "he's" been caught twice before - does your company have a policy of publicising such facts or has "he" told you this.

I find it hard to imagine why someone would do something which they've been caught for more than once before when their job is at risk AND tell people about it as well!?!?!?

That said we're a bunch of prudes in this country so there's no way I'd shop someone for this on account of it harming precisely noone but himself really...

cool for a minute there i thought people were condoning child porn :whistling:
like i said in my prev post, its kinda inapproriate for a work place so if the OP sees him in the act again should just give him warning or something :thumbsup:

All porn is sick, disgusting, and demeaning, also fatty foods and sherbert are extremely bad for the world.

see if its some decent porn and post it up like any other decent chap would do. If the guy has been warned before then its his problem and he has to suffer the consequences so unless its part of your job to spill the beans on said work collegue then I wouldnt bother. :thumbsup:

Why do people automatically assume that its child porn whenever the word porn is mentioned?

FYI, the LEGAL porn industry in the USA alone is worth more than hollywood, and that is movies alone, that exludes legal online sites, other subscriptions like magazines etc.

What is sick is the people who start bad rumour by incorrect assumptions. IF it is the wrong type of porn then he doesnt need to worry about losing his job, he should be more worried about losing his family and his freedom when he gets sent to prison for it.

He's getting paid to look at porn whilst you work.
report the jerk

I see it as a security risk to the network. Full of viruses those sites. I didn't look close enough to see what type of porn it was. But was the usual red lettering on black back ground with pictures of women naked. Might pass on info to the fraud department. They'll take a month to take any action by then he'll have forgotten it was me. Don't you care that a civil servant is doing this using your money?

I'm not condoning his behaviour, but unless you're his manager (which you appear not to be) is it any of your business? I'll leave you to answer that.

was iT BG1 ?

jeez, get a life and stop being so high and mighty and judgemental. You will get more benefit in investigating why your reaction to it is over the top.

Let him be, have a quiet word with him and tell him if management find out they will sack him, the rest is upto him.

Maybe you should be concentrating on getting your own work done and less about worrying what others are doing.

As others have said, it's got nothing to do with you.

In fact, if you're at work now, it's no worse than you posting on here. You're both using work computers for non-work related websites.

lol god whats up with all the grasses everywhere, you have said he has been caught twice before and that you network is being monitored, yet you feel it your place to be a berty smalls and grass on someone who you work with, the fact you even said he has a child etc and that didnt even pull a bit on your heart strings enough to think '' leave it and let him get caught on his own '' or better still have a word and say be careful mate i noticed what you was looking at, so may others. And can you 100% be sure it wasnt a dodgy email he clicked on or a dodgy link, how many of us visit sites who have adult pop ups etc, it would of been different if i walked up to his desk and he was knocking off a few knuckle children, or looking @ child porn (by the sounds of it, it wasnt that)

Fair enough then.

Still, I don't see why you should "snitch" on him. If the network is monitored, he'll get busted anyway.

yea so you cant be 100% sure it wasnt like i said, but it dont look good for him, but surely its not worth making him lose his job

:-D Busted
