More than a third of all employees "surf the Web constantly", according to another tedious and wholly pointless Internet survey from the US. Published by online IT recruitment company VaultReports.com, the report warns that more and more employees are spending time online instead of working. The findings of this report will, no doubt, be used to support the claims made by a bunch of American psychologists on Sunday that six per cent of all Web users are addicted to the Net. In this latest report, researchers polled 466 people and asked them: "How often do you surf non-work related sites?" The answers have startled many industry watchers. Thirty two per cent of respondents admitted to surfing non-work related sites for "a few times a day" while 21 per cent owned up to a sneaky peek "a few times a week". A staggering 37 per cent said they surfed the Web "constantly". And the one in 10 who responded with "Never! That's unethical" surprised even the most hardened analysts. Among the most popular sites visited by surfing employees was kungfuonline, dogpile.com and porn sites. ®
