Excuse me but I am not going to set up my own DNS. I have a laptop that I use at many locations, all with slow DNS resolution (Videotron and Bell, anyone?) and Google provides me with a fast, easily accessible DNS that makes everything snappy and doesn't redirect to some stupid ad page when I mistype.

Submission + - SPAM: Over 50% of Companies Fire Workers For 'Net Abuse

A new survey conducted by the American Management Association and The ePolicy Institute finds that more than 25% of employers have fired workers for misusing e-mail and one-third have fired workers for misusing the Internet. Granted, most firings were porn related (84%), but a surprising number of workers were fired for routine Web surfing."
