business client suspects one of his employees is surfing porn during business hours. He did not confront the employee in question, but he asks me to install something to block porn, which I did.About 2 hours after my visit, the suspect employee sent me this email:Hi Steve, Do you have domain blocks on my computer?So I replied thusly: Hi Tom. I didn’t make any changes to your computer.Would anyone here consider my reply to be a lie? I think not.I kind of agree with Howie. You have a future in government work.Here's the thing: you made a change to the router. While you did not make specific changes to his individual computer, you did make changes that had an effect on his and presumably the computers of everyone else when you applied something to block porn on the router.Now, on to the reply you made later on in this thread: indicating that you asked him to send you a list of the sites he was having trouble accessing and you'd see what you could do. If you had told us that to begin with, then a lot of the question regarding whether you lied would have been resolved, since you offered him a way to try to "fix" the issue.I think your highway analogy was a bit flawed. Howie's analogy of taking out a cell phone tower was a better one, since the person's phone was not physically effected, but the ability to use that phone was hampered.LWW
