Only a demotion? My, they're certainly lenient in Japan.
A Japanese civil servant was demoted for logging more than 780,000 hits on pornographic websites on his office computer over nine months, an official said Friday.
The man, a Kinokawa city government employee in western Japan, visited porn sites from June 2007 to February 2008, city official Tomiko Waki said. The man's name was withheld.
City officials said the number of hits discovered on his computer's internal log was so high in part because one click on certain types of pornographic sites registers multiple hits.
Ah, I see. So multiple clicks registered for one? That's why they're so lenient. Possibly he only clicked about 250,000 times? At the same time the unnamed official was demoted, he also received a $190 / month pay cut. No word on if they've installed filtering software on his PC.
