An anonymous reader writes "Following worldwide attention after being caught looking at pictures of Miranda Kerr at work while a colleague was being interviewed on TV, a petition to save David Kiely's job has started. Stated motives: He seems like a nice bloke, the pics weren't hardcore, he has suffered enough, and, maybe more important, there's just too much political correctness in this world anyway. Showing class and sense of humor, miss Kerr said she will sign the petition."

  • Anyone else think it's funny that they're talking about "expecting a rise" in the interview?

    Looking closely he's opening images attached to an email in what appears to be Outlook. He can hardly be blamed for control over what has been sent to him, especially considering all those implicit in the previous hops of the forwarded email (which will be most of the office!).

    If you've worked in a contemporary office environment, you KNOW this kind of email gets passed around just about everyone, even some pretty explicit stuff, and 90% of the time the managers look the other way (some of that the managers would ask not to be left out, especially if she's hot). If he gets fired then he has a hell of a comeback if he wants to use it; this will not be an isolated incident in this workplace, and there will be a precedent of management staff being in on the dirty office emails.
    • I've worked in several contemporary office environments and I've never seen this (and I'm a straight dude, etc., etc.), except on TV. I wonder if it's regional?

      You're right, he can hardly be blamed for what has been sent to him. However, he can be faulted for continuing to view more images after seeing the first and realizing that it was inappropriate for work.

        I agree. We all have our oops moments where that email comes through or you click on a web link that's NSFW, but honestly, most people have lightning reflexes on closing that stuff as soon as humanly possible. Accidents happen, but stopping and staring weakens your argument that it was an accident at all.

  • is that it's 3 pictures in the same email. In the HD video you can see that all the pictures are being clicked left to right and the email isn't changing. If it was just something forwarded that he accidently clicked on then he should have stopped at the first one and either stop checking it during work (like who's he talking to? A boss or co-worker?) and wait to look at the rest during a break or after work, forward to his personal email or even delete it. It not so much the subject matter of the photo's a

      It's a victory for porn in the workplace. Finally the banks have done something useful.
  • bikini shoots. Nuff said.
  • Porn? What? These images are from GQ magazine if I remember correctly... Not exactly that type of mens magazine.
  • My God! If that is porn, then don't read Sports Illustrated, Ladies Home Journal, and certain not the Daily Mail. Then again, he was looking at them at work AND got caught on tape. Therefore, he should be tried, sentenced, convicted, and executed Internet-style, then promptly forgotten.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
