    Heard that on the radio. Does that mean you just can't go on Facebook on USMC network computers, or does that also mean you can't join the USMC network on Facebook?

    Way to get the with the times marines!

    I remember my shop being ordered by our chief not to surf any non work related sites AT ANY TIME on the ship. When we found out myspace had actually been blocked...i typed it in and got a counseling/3week ban from the computers when my chief had our logs pulled.

    I know Im a bit late but the ban is on the NMCI network. Though with waivers some people can be allowed access to the site for "unit pages". I.E 1 MarDiv can have a page, 1/1 can have a page etc etc. And someone in that unit can update it at work

    It is a rule that you can't visit those sites on a USCG computer... but you physically can... just don't get caught.

    I thought it has always been MC policy not to surf SNS'. 99-04 (first enlistment) , we got a 30 day account ban for surfing unauthorized sites.

    What amaze me still, is how servicemen still email/surf porn/soft porn. Then they wonder how they got busted.

    I havent been able to get on myspace or shit like that in years. Up until last month we were able to get on OT and stuff by taking off the LAN settings, which they have since fixed. Now I sit at work bored as fuck :(
