It would be one thing to have an employer ok this practice, but to do it under the radar is not only fraudulent, but unethical.
I think we're talking at cross-purposes. I'm not condoning doing it in a sneaky manner. I thought SirTox was being slightly facetious: before you take a job, you don't normally know if there will be downtime or what your boss or company policies will be like. So you take the job because you need to earn a living, and you do their work, but then you find your have downtime.
Most companies actually have a policy stating that you can use the net for recreational or personal purposes during your downtime, so working on sites comes under that header.
