Fun should be banned

We all know we'd get a lot more done if "fun" was banned (and your job/work being "fun" doesn't count)

Most fun things are distractions, a waste of resources, and should be discouraged, 'frowned upon', made not "cool" and even banned.

Who agrees ?

I disagree. People who work hard need to be able to have fun when they're not working. Without a reasonable work/life balance, there's either too much work or too little life.
EDIT: That didn't come out right. Meant either too little work or too little life.

You must be a Manager or Admin, why not just go back to a 16 hr day. twice as much productivity. While your at it, steal any benefits, charge double at the country store.

In the ancient olden days, computer games were textual word solving problems as there were no graphic computer monitors, only data entry terminals and printers. Graphics consisted of the 256 ASCII characters molded into a high-speed chain that struck 80 characters per line in a short buzz before advancing the paper one line space. They were exercises in logic and problem solving, not hand-eye coordination and reflexes. It was a fun way to have some nerdy downtime unlike what is sold for most "computer games" now. When Microsoft introduced Solitaire it was not for gamesmanship but to teach people how to use that new-fangled mouse thing in a fun and enjoyable exercise. Corporate productivity plunged meteorically. We have yet to pull up from that plunge.
