     Actually, what it tells me is that they have information flow control 
     more like corporations than universities, and that they should look 
     there for possibly already configured solutions to their problem.  The 
     firewalls mailing list address such things commonly.
     Beats me why folks keep bringing in their own prejudices to a comon p 
     roblem.  A shame they are blocked by their own fears and wind up 
     re-inventing the wheel.  Ah well.....

Erm, like what? That there are still people who believe in morality in an
increasingly amoral society? That not everyone thinks that freedom of speech
is the highest human good? That a private organisation has a right to apply
particular rules to its members?

Somehow, though, I don't think you meant any of those things.
