He's not necessarily doing anything wrong.  Most employers permit personal, limited internet usage as long as it doesn't interfere with company work.  That includes doing so during a lunch time. 

If so, and if the company is so flexible, then my previous premises apply too. i.e., that there should be an intent to visit explicit sites and to create a "hostile work environment." Hardly such a flexible policy goes combined with a zero-tolerance one.

I am sorry that this request is such an inconvenience to you and that it violates your morals in such a fundamental way, but I am not moved by your arguments that remain detached from the reality of our modern society.

Kindest regards...over my lunchbreak,

You wish them to change their behaviour, so the problem is that they are not moved by your arguments.

Curtesy = holding the door for bank robbers on their way out? ;)

Non sequitur.

Thank God Michelangelo's David is not in the USA, they would have to dress him up. They actually did that to a replica that served as a hotel's fountain here in the Midwest, when the conference facilities were rented by a religious group.

For a more recent take on dressing up statues for their "immodesty", check out this video (sorry for the ad in the beginning):

I think the word you are looking for is courtesy.

Curtesy = 'The life tenure that by common law is held by a man over the property of his deceased wife if children with rights of inheritance were born during the marriage.'

Which has very little to do with the thread.

Cheers,

Indeed. Thanks for the courteous reminder.

Let me just throw this monkey-wrench in to the fray...

I got a letter from school that my daughter was inappropriately dressed one day. It was summer and she was wearing a tank top with spaghetti straps. Ah, yes... that was when she was in kindergarten.

As one of the 'guilty parties' who has posted the occasional nude here, I am quite happy to place the word 'nudity' in the Subject of the post. This will serve both to warn and to welcome, I should imagine.

Well, I find it all so depressing that in this day and age there are still social bubbles where the human figure is considered dirty, unsafe and at the very least, distasteful.

Creating a special 'red light' district in LuLa would be a terribly backwards step, making out of innocence and art a monster of vice.

If that happens, then I really do think I bid my third and final adieu to a place that helped me a great deal, especially after the death of my wife, urged me back into the making of images at a time when the strongest thought was the exiting of everything; few who helped me are even aware of their contribution - I doubt that any of them is - but I thank them nonetheless.

A friend in England sent me a book called Exposure, which is a strange investigation into the life and death of Bob Carlos Clarke.

It is a sequence of interviews. One of these, with photographer John Stoddard, reports a conversation  with Patrick Lichfield, who first embraced digital and then, later, complained that it had ruined his life, that nobody wanted to send him anywhere anymore. Another interviewee mentions the death of one of my oft-quoted heroes, Terence Donovan, and that the feeling existed that age and familiarity had begun to turn him into a mild form of yesterday man...

Photography is a flickering flame at the back of a shed; don't make even stronger winds blow.

Backwards to allow choice. Got to love it. Interesting also that the anti crowd are mainly the coffee corner pugilists who can all be happily ignored anyway.

Have you got your gum-guard handy, Ben? I have the feeling you might need it...!

I never claimed that my morals were being violated. I also never argued that viewing nudes in a workplace was not a potential problem - it is, of course. I did argue that you should not expect the forum membership to change their posting habits to suit your convenience, yet you totally ignore my point. You seem to feel entitled to have others change their habits so you don't have to change yours.

I never shoot nudes so this would not affect me one way or the other.

Is there some reason why you don't bother to read and understand posts before replying? It really makes for much more intelligent threads.

I think this thread has run its course without agreement. I feel further deliberation unnecessary and likely to expose more...
