Oh, that's professional.

I get to bust a guy who changed his workstation description to read "{name}'s work whore". And, the sad part is, this person is in IT. *sigh*

I've seen some interesting names on the Network Neighborhood, usually on developers' machines.

At our job, many of us have taken Camelot-type themes. There's King Arthur (Art Goralski), Peasant Natalee (Natalee Willcut), Lady Diane (Daine Mandaris), Court Jester James (James Umbach), Sir Michael (Michael Voth), etc.

Our basement is "Ye olde dungeon," and the entire building is called "The castle." Nothing wrong with a little harmless fun.

And when you are dealing with a handful of machines, that's fine.

We have over 10,000 desktops. We have a naming standard. We have Sarbanes-Oxley and otehr brouhaha to deal with. This... ain't kkosher.

Well, does this person whose workstation you discovered set such actually take money in exchange for sexual activity from {name}? If so, then his description might actually be simply factual instead of off-color.

Well, considering the person whose workstation I was referring to *is* {name}, they would be paying themselves for self-gratification...

I'm not sure that such a position is in any way a bad thing. I would certainly apply for such a job should I have the opportunity to get paid for such activity.
