[californiadisasters] Re: Admin Read: I Wuz Hakt

Excellent point Kemasa.

Before I retired my work computer was on the police/fire network and the procedure was to google URLs before clicking.

In the example today on this group Google clearly shoowed it to be a porn site.

And yes, people can be fired. Happened where i worked as even if you click way stuff gets stored in your cache and history.
