Internet Addiction = $5 Million

How's this for nerve? Former IBM employee James Pacenza admittedly spent hours at Big Blue not working, but trolling the Internet, cruising some of the more licentious and lascivious spots.

When he got fired, it wasn't his fault. It was IBM and his boss' fault because they never dealt with his Internet addiction. Boohoo! Pacenza went through so much hassle that he clearly deserves the $5 million his lawyer is asking for.

What would you give Mr. Pacenza? Tell us at dbarney@redmondmag.com, and try to keep it cleaner than Pacenza's Web cache!
