I apologise for not noticing this story before:
Scotsman.com News - Indian Ocean earthquake - City hunts worker over sick jokes
A COUNCIL worker is facing the threat of disciplinary action after being caught searching the internet for sick jokes about the Asian tsunami.
An investigation has been launched after the operator of an internet blog site complained to the city council.
The operator said his site, which contains a variety of news items and internet "funnies", received a hit from someone at the authority who had used the Yahoo! search engine to look for "tsunami joke".
Council officials believe it could take days to identify the individual involved as they have more than 20,000 employees.
The webmaster, on www.freedomforall.net wrote: "Somebody working for Edinburgh District Council [sic] thinks it would be fun to have a few "tsunami jokes" to tell. If the sickness of what was being done is not bad enough, they are using the council's computers and their work time to find them. I felt it was good form to give them a call and let them know. They called me to say it is being raised as a "security incident", will be investigated and result in action."
A council spokeswoman said: "We are investigating and will take appropriate action if necessary."
- A website called "Freedomforall" acting like a Gestapo informer.
A Council spending days searching out an employee to take "appropriate action".
WTF is going on?
I presume the poor sod who was trying to find a funny joke about the tsunami (all the ones I have seen have been pathetic) is going to marched off to some camp for "re-education...
Sometimes I feel there is a parallel universe out there which everyone else is living in.
