Main Question or Discussion Point

WHITE PLAINS, New York (AP) -- A man who was fired by IBM for visiting an adult chat room at work is suing the company for $5 million, claiming he is an Internet addict who deserves treatment and sympathy rather than dismissal.

His story might be slightly credible, but then you see that he wants $5 million. He's a money-grabber, no question.

I think he has a better case for arguing age discrimination. They fired him 6 months before his retirement, all because he went in some sexual chat rooms a couple of times. Meanwhile, a younger couple has sex on a desk and is only transferred? This smacks of pension-robbing.
