Not at all. The only reason my sig says what it does now is that my
_company_ (Hughes) is cracking down. I'm trying to avoid potential problems.
And anyway, we now gave a SLIP connection at home, so we can easily direct
all personal mail to our OWN account. Who needs NASA computers? ......
(Actually, uh, I do.)

The severity of the "stigma" depends on your employer. Being a government
contractor, they're playing hardball with us. My SLIP is only $33/month, and
it also lets my wife easily communicate with me during the day (I work at
Goddard Space Flight Center, which is 40 miles from home). Also, I can
easily download stuff for my computer-and-dinosaur-enraptured 4-yr old, Alex.
