Extremely important point on SEC porn-surfing

Quite properly, people are outraged that surfing the Internet for porn was such a major activity at the Securities & Exchange Commission during 2007-8, just when the economy was collapsing.

Forbes:

The female accountant tried to access online pornography from her office laptop nearly 1,800 times in two weeks, CNN reports. She also had 600 sexually explicit images saved on her hard drive.

But the really important question is:

But it is not just that the problem was born and matured under Bush and Cox, it is the fact that it is symptomatic for the emasculation and gutting of the SEC which occurred at their hands and express direction. It was not a bug, but a feature.

In other words, did people working at the SEC really have anything better to do, or were they so bored and distracted in their powerless state under the Bush Administration that they simply had nothing better to fill their days with?
