That policy works very well for some staff members.

Those that tend to start early and finish late get away with a bit more
in between, can take a few extra breaks or expect to leave work early
when they have a personal errand to run etc.

I'm just saying that overall some programs - chat, games etc. have very
little right to be on a work computer and it's not unreasonable to
block certain ports or applications on a corporate network to prevent
abuse by staff with less self-control.

On the plus side... we've really sorted out the "no messages today"
situation with this one!
