  • «Things like this do not happen in busy workplaces.».
  • «There are certainly such teachers. But I don’t think 57 years is enough».
  • «Today, people over the age of 50 tend to find pornography on the Internet. You do not hear about these scandals with young people, but the elderly often want to eat this stuff. This often happens. The first victims of misleading advertising from pornographic websites are people aged 60 and over now».
  • «You have access to those sites. You do not think about the fact that they will know your history in the first place, for official purposes».
  • «You would be ashamed to use the school internet as it would make your personal taste very clear.».
