Michelle has a great point. These rules are set up for people for people who abuse the privelage. Would anyone care to respond to my previous questions, or would it just prove my point (like how many of you would tell your bosses that you chat on discussion forums during work time ---> and congrats ...

I don't have to suffer a financial loss in order for something to matter to me; I'm not that material. It's the principle, kind of like theft (it matters even if my stuff isn't stolen), abuse, etc. Just like the discussion on website photos; we all learned something new, and learned what was appropr...

To me the only exception to this rule is if your boss is aware of and approves personal use of the internet during company time. Okay, so ask yourself these questions: ("you" being anybody) 1. What if everybody knew? 2. What if everybody did it? Also of interest... Is this a benefit offered to every...

I do understand what SQ is saying. It is based on the amount of time employees waste. Every situation is different thou. Thanks whoahorse. And I agree, every situation is different. As long as you and your boss see eye to eye on the issue, especially that he/she is aware of what you are doing, then...

The difference is that the company doesn't pay for the cigarettes you smoke, but they do pay for the internet time. As for checking in whenever you feel like it (stress break, concentration break, ect), that's company time. If your boss/company is okay with it during scheduled breaks, all the power ...

Not to stir the pot here, but one of the frustrations that I deal with is trying to keep employees doing the jobs they were hired to do and are paid for, and to NOT use company time for personal business. I know high speed is nice and dial-up sucks, but really... should your boss be paying for you t...

I think that April is very much in the right here. Leaving all legal issues aside, as a person, I would not publish a picture if the person in that picture did not want it published. Period. If that's what the person was like in mannerisms and character over posting pictures, I personally would be h...

What if the horse is owned by someone else (other than the rider)? Like, if the website were promoting training services but features a horse that said person did not train or own?

I definately agree that rodeo is not the worst thing for animals. Unfortunately, I think that it is the backyard, occasional incidence that gets attention, (as it should, although on a smaller scale). I have personally seen bucking stock that have feet so gross you wonder how they walk let alone buc...

I think you make a valid, cogent, and well articulated argument, Miss Brooke. Not that you're trying to start a fight, I just meant well said!! In response to eee's comment, I don't think that barrel racers should be put in the position of feeling that the ONLY way we will get a properly marked patt...

I think everyone agrees that committees work hard and that we all appreciate what they do. But it is a two way street: committees need contestants, and vice versa. Some committees are receptive to suggestions, others are not. I think one of the original points that was made was that why does this on...

interval timing

I checked out the web site, and that is so cool that Interval Timing Canada will be at the Jenna Wills Memorial Race in BC in August. That race makes lots of money to support youth in rodeo. Last year the entire timer fees were donated, a big contribution to the fund. I can only imagine that the Int...

Contracts don't hold much weight in court. It's like waivers that you sign for an association or at a race - they are just a deterrent, but have ZERO weight in court (trust me). I would think that that a contract would be much more credible if it were notarized.
