So i got told about this the afternoon by someone. this afternoon on the 7news market update, in the background you can see a trader flicking between his charts and porn and then right at the end he looks around and realises that he has just lost his job lol.

Yeh this did the rounds at work also. No wonder they work so much at MacBank if they spend half their time looking at porn ;)

LOL... I think he got the stuff from email.. it looked like Outlook that he was switching from.

If this thing doesn't get too viral he probably get away with it too.

Oh dear :eek:

Maybe he'll get away with a slap on the wrist? If the manager cracks up while trying to fire him he'll probably get away with it :)

What's the bet he did it on purpose, knew the camera was rolling, kinda like a gag.

That's my guess.

Depending on where you sit on the food chain, chances are you can get away with that sort of funny stuff.

Yes I must admit I just done the same :)

May be he's only hope is that the dirty email was sent by his boss?

Couldn't he claim that a little, um, light relief from the demanding nature of his work helped his overall concentration?

Some of his colleagues might choose a walk round the block, or a cup of coffee.
He gets a similar benefit from a little visual stimulus. Nothing wrong with that.:)

channel 9 news were happy to make a point of it.

certainly email received, so you can guess their filters are poor - send their staff anything you want, it will get thru, and probably be opened.

in these days of correctness, he'll be on the streets tonight, as should the IT guys.

I don't think there's anything to get worked up over. The first pic may have shown a nipple, but that is only a guess based on body position and what appears to be a lack of clothing. The second pic is clothed, and the third is almost certainly covering her parts. It's very possible that none of this is anything worse than you'd see in a sports mag.

Would there be such a ruckus if he had opened a file like this?

Apparently it's a private wealth guy. Must be just trying to maintain relationship with a client. From business spectator.

And finally, the shock of the RBA's rate decision pales in comparison to the shock of seeing a silver donut employee, from Macquarie Private Wealth, realising that his office-time perv session was being broadcast live on Channel Seven.

That was my guess too - I spend two years at Mac and it is something that I would have been dared to do.
