Censorship by the man
« on: April 02, 2009, 08:47:27 am »
I just received this:

Quote
From: "Cadence Youngberg" <cadenceyoungberg@mail.und.nodak.edu>
Date: 02 April, 2009 8:12:34 AM CDT (CA)
To: <redacted>
Subject: Please send out to your students or leaders of organizations


There are new bulletin boards in the stairwells of Harrington Hall (2)  and Upson II (1). These are to be used for STUDENT INFORMATION. 

Please do not post flyers on the windows, doors or walls in any of the buildings.   They will be taken off.

Thank you.


Dean's Office

You would think the Dean would have more important things to worry about than this.  I'd like to know if he actually cares where we put posters.

Some of you are thinking "yeah, so what?" in response to something like this.  I used to love going over to Engineering and seeing the free reign of informational discharge.  It reminded me of my undergrad, where we posted stuff up wherever we could find a place (and on a smaller campus, no less).  Since I've been here, we've never been able to put things up NOT on a bulletin board in my department, and since there's only a cork strip by each of the doors, you can hang two flyers up before it becomes a mess. 

This is not the way to allow students to communicate to each other.  This is not the way to encourage people to know what's going on in your department and to become interested in the subjects being taught or the organizations that exist.  This is not the way to encourage free speech and free expression.

It may be the case that they think this causes the custodial staff extra work.  I'd like to see proof of that.  If it costs money, then I'd gladly be in favor of more spending on "letting students be students" than putting new rubber bumpers on the edges of the tables in the classrooms (seriously, they're doing this; a table is still a table whether it has a rubber bumper or not).
JUST EXTRA POLISH. I DO SOME WORK WITH EXCELL SO I KEEP THE CAPS LOCK ON :-P

They really dont want us to be put posters and such in many places other than boards and a few select areas here.  Maybe this limit is all the more reason for people to come over to Campus Dakota and post and communicate!

That one's been there for a year now!  You are obviously not familiar with our smiley collection.

Only the two I've added so far today.

Also, the cycling club will be getting some new ones soon.

By the way--the man is still keeping us down!

I wish we could have a multi-page smiley popup.  Is there a mod for that?

One would think that wouldnt be terribly hard to accomplish... Maybe?
