"No personal use of work computers": I guess that didn't apply to the SEC; they were too distracted

Well, I thought that the little bit of testing of my own site connections through Telnet back in 1999 from work was venial -- I wasn't working on personal content, just learning technology. And as I said one time, I heard about it.

So you would think that regulators at the SEC who make six figures regulating and watching the financial markets (like Goldmann Sachs) would use government computers for business use only. We know they didn't.  A number of them have been disciplined, but the whole episode is shocking.

Let's say that the watchdogs were very distracted at work.
