All the world's a campus 

We've reported in the past that this university makes it a habit of enforcing on-campus rules for off-campus behaviors, particularly where move-in day is concerned. But this is extending to the internet. Greg Lukianoff and Will Creeley notice how much enforcement is being done by schools of one's behavior on MySpace and Facebook. I take the public/private distinction to this direction: If you go to a private school and sign off on the school verifying your moral education, this is permissible. I could imagine a religious institution doing this. But a public institution? I should hope not.
