hi kate i often surf the block when im at work, Shhh! im not supposed to,[;)] but at work this site has been blocked with a message that says this site has been blocked because of malware!
normally if they block a site its because of it being social media or trade me so its not blocked just because they dont want us to look at it, thought you better know, cheers mike.

Hi Mike

When did this happen? We were hacked last week but sorted it out pretty quickly....it shouldn't be a problem now.

Kate, I'm having problems too. .. not with blocking but when I log onto the site the top menu bar with the links to the forum etc flicks up and then disappears.. I have to go to the bottom and click on one of the most popular links, go in there and then the menu bar reappears and I can click on it and I'm away.... am I doing something wrong???

As a side issue, be careful that your employer isn't recording and reading what you are doing on line.
My SIL's friend, already at the point of a personal grieveance claim against the employer, was terminated from her role just prior to christmas due to a remark she made in a private email from her own email addy using the work computer.

As I read the headlines etc reply to my emails whilst eating my lunch, I wondered if an employer could dictate what I view (as long as it wasn't illegal stuff) during a rest break.

What your employer can look at will partly depend on the agreement you have for personal use of the computer and internet access. Thinking about the paper equivalent sometimes helps eg:
If you use your work email address to send personal messages, it is a bit like sending a personal letter on company letterhead. They have every right to know what is being sent in their name.
If you use the company facilities to send a personal email through a personal account, it is more like using the company software, printer, paper and stamps to write a personal letter. It is reasonable for them to ask what it is.

There is a guide to privacy in the workplace here , from the Privacy Commissioner, and the relevant part is on page 35.

Thanks hawkespur I will check out the link.

As far as I am aware, she (like myself) didn't have an agreement in her workplace as to whether she could open and respond to private emails during her working day.

it was definitely her own private email that was used, thus the surprise. She had no knowledge that it was being monitored.

I would compare it to having your mobile turned on all day and answering those calls. Should that be allowed as it is for others at my workplace.

What you do on a company computer is usually company business, text messages you send on a company phone are also company property. Things you design or ideas you have at work are company intellectual property. Simply don't do things at work. Personally I even try to avoid work at work :D
