While many households still lack Internet access because of price barriers,
others who can afford to go online at home are choosing not to for a variety
of reasons, including ready access to the Net at work, according to a new report from
the Yankee Group. "Historically, there has been a group of Internet users in the
United States that have chosen not to have Internet access at home," Yankee analyst
Rob Lancaster said.

Well, if I had to guess, they probably don't like it very much -- and the truth is that they have a right to regulate it if they so desire. On the other hand, each employer must make the decision individually based on size of the business, percent of employees with Internet access, seriousness of the problem, and potential consequences of allowing vs. prohibiting or blocking e-shopping.
