[BALU] OT Limiting internet

Maybe I¹m missing something, but ... Why again is this IT¹s problem? It
sounds like you were asked to supply a tech solution when what management
has is an obvious human resources issue they¹re refusing to address. There¹s
a nut loose between the chair and the keyboard ‹ let HR or the big boss fix
it by making a policy and then enforcing it through quarterly reviews and/or
some other regular process (someone set up an HR cron job or something ;-).
Sorry if that¹s not the answer you wanted, but management shouldn¹t be
coming to you for a solution to an employee problem ‹ you should be going to
management about this employee¹s problem, and that should be the last you
ever hear about the subject.

As an aside, why do so many managers suddenly get touchy-feely when it comes
time to tell an employee what they can and can not do while on the clock?
And my sincere apologies for being the world¹s youngest curmudgeon ....
