    Figures. I'd be a lot more productive if the internet were so full of naked people.

    "When on the verge of the most major economic crisis in around 80 years, they were watching porn instead of the financial system."

    How the eff does a government agency not have firewalls up to block people from going to those sites on the clock? I would think that's just a given.

    We are simply getting what we deserve by lowering our standards, not being more critical of our government and refusing to hold anyone accountable for anything.

    The state of denial.
    Maybe they were just confused, and were under the impression that they were supposed to keep tabs on their spank banks.

    Wow. Sixteen people surf for porn and the whole economy implodes? Excuse me, I think that's my reality check buzzer going off....

    The headline is more than a little sensational--the SEC has 3800 employees, after all. But this is certainly embarrassing and disappointing for them.

    Where I work, the IT group scans company PCs for inappropriate files. If porn is found on your PC it's cause for immediate termination. (That would be a difficult conversation with your spouse.) Maybe only 16 documented incidents but seeing how things played out it might have just been the tip of the iceberg; poor accountability in government... :rollno:

    I definitely am not a regulator, then. I was the verge. Should I blame my GF?

    Even Madoff said he could not understand how the SEC didn't catch him, guess we know now.

    This story is obviously bogus. Everyone knows there's no porn on the internet.

    It does put a whole new spin on the term, "money shot".
