• Big brother in our homes…also?

    I’ve always said that Internet filtering in the workplace is fine as long as it’s not abused by a rogue network admin or HR manager. Employees are paid to work while at work – not sit around and goof off on the Internet half the day. So, where can you go to get unfiltered and unfettered access to the Internet? Well, apparently you can’t rely on your home Internet connection for this if you use Comcast. They’re using “traffic management” as an excuse to slow down and kill certain Internet connections. Not sure if I buy that. That said, it’s there prerogative to choose to shoot themselves in the foot and hamper customers. Hopefully people who are negatively affected by this will take their business elsewhere. Gotta love Capitalism and the freedom of choice!
