RE: Blocking Internet Gaming
Title: RE: Blocking Internet Gaming
That's an excellent point Stephen. Killing employee morale can have longlasting repurcussions. I had the pleasure of experiencing a good decision of this type about 3 years ago when I worked in India. The execs decided NOT to block outbound port 80, even though it was taking up 75% of the bandwidth on a 128k link. They paid for an upgrade to 256k (SFO -> Bangalore, not cheap!) and decided not to block port 80, as the damage to employee morale would be too severe.
