I wouldn't say that...
If anything it was the person who called in the auditors and of course before they fired anyone they needed to have a policy in place forbidding the surfing of questionable sites.
If you think this is bad, my friend worked as part of an exchange's in house counsel and some of the stuff traders used to do would make even a salty sailor blush. And they got to keep their jobs and in some cases seats on the exchange. We'd hear about it at happy hour, of course names omitted to protect the guilty.
Sorry, but if you were dumb enough to surf for porn on company time and equipment, you deserved it.
For the rest of us... there was USENET.
