No, students pay the IT bill, students pay the tution, students pay service fees. It is the students that pay for the school and its internet connection. Also, if you ever go away to a college where you live in a dorm on campus, you will see that blocking certain sites on their network pretty much makes them off limits to you. You act as if it is different from what the chinese do, because the chinese do it on a larger scale. If there is a problem with people hoarding bandwidth, then restrict the amount that some people can use... the problem pretty much goes away. They might as well start installing surveillance cameras to make sure students aren't goofing off when they should be studying... This is college, they have no right to tell a student what he should or should not be doing. If I am paying many thousands of dollars a year to go to a school with an information technology fee on top of it all, I should be able to watch a little porn and read the websites I want. As for your question, would it be censorship for the school to not provide internet access? The answer is yes, IF the school does it intentionally. A girl I went to high school with had a religious father who would prevent her from reading Harry Potter books and would burn clothes he thought were unsuitable (for the slightest reasons). Her father acted as a censor. Just because you think that the censorship is morally justified does not mean it is not censorship! IF YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HEAT, GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN! Honestly. Don't bitch about what they do with your money, especially when you signed up *knowing* what was going to happen. You gave it to them and they were up front with the fact that you would not be allowed to look at your furry love. I'm sick and tired of people bitching about an organization not doing what they think it should do. You're not in control as soon as you sign their terms of service, that's why you sign! You have the ability to make decisions. You weren't forced into spending your money at that college. If that's a big enough bone for you to pick at, go somewhere else or talk to the IT people and try to change it, or do SOMETHING other than complain. End of rant.
