Man Suing IBM Over Chat Room Firing
James Pacenza was fired from IBM for visiting adult chat rooms while at work. He is suing the company for $5 million, stating that he has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and sexual chat talk diverts his attention from Vietnam memories and is therapeutic.


Fox News: “Pacenza stated, ‘I felt I needed the interactive engagement of chat talk…to divert my attention from my thoughts of Vietnam and death.’ Is it just me or is this patently laughable?”

Tad: “It’s patently laughable. And the funny thing is, he should really say, what he really needed from chat talk is to divert his attention away from his job.”

Fox News: “Basically he says he’s disabled, but that is not a recognizable disability under the Americans with Disability Act, am i wrong?”

Tad: “You’re 100% right…any sexual disorders are all excluded by the Americans with Disabilites Act. And here we got his lawyer even coming up with a more novel claim, that it’s an internet kind of a disorder. So now we have a sexual disorder tied with an internet disorder. The guy is just making things up, it’s crazy.”
