Staff Threaten Mass Revolt
A great wailing and gnashing of teeth was recently felt at top IT company ForwardSlash, with the news that they were no longer able to access the reputable website, ShaunOakes.com
“It’s ridiculous,” said a rather aggrieved employee, who wished to remain anonymous as he had a silly name and didn’t want anyone to publicly ridicule him for it.
“There is nothing pornographic or offensive on the site. It’s just a great read. It’s even better than Facebook”
When contacted for comment, a source in senior management admitted that the site wasn’t offensive or contained images of gratuitous nudity, but supported the decision to block it nonetheless.
“Basically it came down to productivity” said the source. “We found too many people were spending their days sitting on the site, which ate up our bandwidth, slowed down our internet connection, and caused a slow down in worker performance. We agreed to allow Facebook but we had to draw the line at the Shaun Oakes website”
Management seemed concerned at the threat of mass action, but were unmoved on their decision at the time of going to print.
