Unfounded Rumor of the Day: Porn Floating Around PwC’s Internal Instant Messaging Service

Have you ever trash talked in IM at work? Have you ever been paranoid enough about it that you asked Reddit if they have ever trash talked in IM and gotten in trouble for it?

This guy did. "I feel like I have no filter when I get on sametime," he said. Surely you all can relate. Something about using company computers, during work hours, talking to coworkers just makes you want to be wild and crazy and possibly offensive!

Well, one alleged former P-Dubber has some stories to tell:

I've also seen nudes and other highly inappropriate images being sent on PwC Sametime. That shit isn't being actively monitored, though I'm sure everything is being stored somewhere in case of future issues.

Nudes? How exactly does that come up?

Anyway, that's your unfounded rumor of the day. Courtesy Reddit, natch.
