If you were caught gaming at work, what would they fire you for? A friend was lamenting about how the WoW ports were blocked at his office (He claims not to be an addict, but the guy has spent 800-900+ hours on one character in the last year. He has 5 characters at 70, two are in some crazy-ass hard to get gear, or so I'm told (Not a big WoW player myself, so I have no idea)) and claims that they wouldn't fire him because 'he has nothing else to do'. I contested this - They would (And rightly should) fire someone for gaming in the workplace, but I don't know what it would come under? Would it be misconduct?
