One issue I've heard raised before is that some people view their
resnet not as an academic network but a residential network. Once
that distinction is made the priorities begin shifting away from
"it's our property" and more toward "our customers [students] have
a right to engage in recreational activities in their home [dorm]
as long as said activities are a) legal and b) not in violation of
campus code of conduct."
Personally I have mixed feelings about this, but that doesn't change
the fact that there are in fact people in high-ranking offices who
espouse such views, and they do make a good point.
