Several employees of the National Science Foundation are receiving harsh criticism for their research into human online sexuality. U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, (R-Iowa and notorious prude) says

he wants to know more about a National Science Foundation probe that found employees surfing pornography Web sites.

The important research was put on hold and a senior foundation official was forced to resign as a result of Sen. Grassley's questioning of this important scientific endeavor.

So, OK, we like to think that the people at the NSF are really smart. But this guy, according to an inspector general’s report, wasn’t just clicking around occasionally on the “down-low.” The report said he was spending something like 20 percent of his time at work trolling around on the dark side of the Internet — allegedly looking at sexually explicit images and engaging in explicit online chats with various women. The inspector general calculated the value of the time lost at more than $58,000 — for that one worker. A senior official? Go figure.

Because of this inquiry years of hard research will probably be lost and this important scientific study may have to be canceled.
