PNNL adult content policy

Hope you get a good laugh out of this. According to the felons at PNNL/Battelle the picture below constitutes “adult content”. In the big picture of things this might not even be brought up later on. It’s just a minor example of the egregious nature of the pretexts they used to justify firing me.

This picture was taken by my daughter Xenia at a public fair in Moscow, Idaho on April 30, 2005. I had viewed her Live Journal post believing PNNL’s “reasonable use” policy for company computers would include such material. The image was cached by the web browser and their scan of the hard disk revealed it. I wouldn’t have guessed that it would run afoul of their “adult content” policy or imagine someone would have the gall to use such a picture as a pretext to fire me. Perhaps my daughter’s friend should have been wearing a burqa.

Update: Perhaps that picture is more “interesting” than I thought. PNNL investigators viewed that picture on Xenia’s Live Journal five times. “PUCK” viewed it four times and “WD31448” (Una Carriera) viewed it once as well:

  • 2005-05-09 15:54:38 (PUCK)
  • 2005-05-17 17:25:32 (PUCK)
  • 2005-05-17 17:36:36 (WD31448)
  • 2005-05-19 23:18:20 (PUCK)
  • 2005-05-23 17:20:52 (PUCK)

Very, very interesting…

  1. I don’t get it– two wholesome looking teenagers in a city park with children in the background? What am I missing?

  2. I won’t know for certain until I question the guy under oath. Even then it’s hard to say if we will get a straight answer from him. Perhaps he is deeply religous and thought it offensive. Perhaps something else. In any case it is bogus in terms of justifying, even in part, my termination.
