    A local council employee in Japan has been punished after it was discovered he had accessed porn websites at work more than 780,000 times in nine months.

    His superiors were alerted to the problem only when his computer became infected with a virus.

    The 57-year-old man, who has not been named, works for the city of Kinokawa in southern Japan.

    He held on to his job, but has been demoted and his wages have been cut by about 20,000 yen ($190; £80) a month.

    Productivity question

    Each day he would turn up to work, but once in his office it seems unlikely he got much done.

    A council investigation found that he viewed more than 750,000 pornographic websites in nine months.

    His habit reached its peak last July when he surfed for porn more than 177,000 times during office hours.

    That works out at almost 10,000 pages a day, or more than 20 each minute he was at his desk.

    A council official, trying to explain why no-one had noticed, said that each employee's desk was set apart from the others.

    The man was discovered only when his computer became infected with a virus, prompting officials to look at his web-browser history.

    He has not been sacked but he has been demoted and his pay cut by about $200 a month. No doubt he is also proving to be a little more productive now.

    So. He wasn't "productive" before. And now that he's being disciplined and re-trained, that means that he's going to be... what... "re-productive" now?

    Sounds like our moderators! J/K

    In America most places with a single porn hit at work will get you canned in an instant. I dont care what one wants to do with thier time at home, but that is totally inappropriate for a work setting.

    I cant even imagine how much bandwidth that used up. 17 porn hits a minute, one might look at that like true dedication to ones hobby I guess.
