AAAAAAH!!! WHERE IS EVERYBODY?!?
FreeRepublic's down and now I can't get to the "backup" site on Yahoo.
(Yes, FreeRepublic is really sloooooow today. John says that he's looking into it.)
Long story short, these 9 people made hundreds of phone calls to Washington (~1200!), sent hundreds of FAXes and sent thousands of emails... all on company time! (And before you ask, SirFishalot is an independent contractor using his own laptop and a cellular modem. As he puts it, he's stealing from himself when he's online; not the company.) This company has a very plain, easily understood policy on the use of computers and phones for personal business: DON'T! They also make it clear to their employees that they monitor the usage of these systems.
Now these 9 have plenty of free time to participate in the pro-Saddam demonstrations!
