Letter to the Editor

Regarding your March 15 article, "Limited personal use is OK," unless "limited" is clearly defined, this sounds like limited abuse.

Where is the "limit"? What about users who download music files or video clips or radio programs? How much of a federal network's bandwidth is an employee allowed? How much are they allowed to interfere with the business of a federal agency?

Without clear limits, limited use will become limited abuse by some employees.
