Good points Peter, and I would agree, but people push the envelope when we say “no, but yes under certain conditions.”
What constitutes a “work environment”? Are you referring to time of day? Maybe whether or not someone is using a work computer? What if I used my personal iPad and personal data plan while at my desk, or on break?
Does your agency limit personal Internet access while at work? Many agencies that I worked with allowed for incidental and personal use of websites (like this one) during work hours, so long as it didn’t interfere with productivity.
Not arguing, just curious 🙂
