Wherefore art thou Dennis Ritchie?
I've never really had the time or inclination to be a BOFH, but you can't block any fantasy football sites because even managers "need" them.
I once had an issue with a woman that used to go to gambling sites at work. When we blocked them, she complained to her boss. I was amazed that her boss had the balls to ask us to allow it... but he was the CEO's brother.
I have witnessed BOFH-type abuse by a consultant against another IT person. The guys did not get along, so the consultant blocked all the sites that other guy went to, and when confronted about it, he pretty much said, "F-off. I am in charge of the proxy". Hardocp is the only one that comes to mind. It got so bad that one of the networking guys built another proxy server "for testing" and gave the IT folks access to it.
We fired the consultant about a month after I found out what he was doing.
I worked at a small software firm where the DBAs and programmers were one and the same. The problem came about when one of the owners decided that IT should report into the head DBA/Programmer. Unmitigated disaster. The head DBA truly believed that he understood servers and networks because he had written code that ran on them. It lasted about 3 weeks.
The crazy part was when they tried the same thing a few years later. It lasted about 6 weeks
Ostensibly Mr. Smith claims that he shipped it home because he didn't want it to get bent like the last Heisman winner from Ohio State, Eddie George, had happen to him.
