    Your school policy forbids you to use kookie names that have funny symbols in them? :eek:

    You should really PM a "God" or "Mod" ... 'twould be faster. :)

    Good luck, with, hmm, whatever. ;)

    Your school policy states that you can't have a profile on a privately owned and operated site? :rolleyes: Tell them to go to hell, and keep it.

    That was a horrible, HORRIBLE pun and you should be ashamed of yourself. :rolleyes:

    (Secretly upset that I didn't think of it myself...)

    Send a PM to Doctor Q. He can unregister you.

    Given that you've been registered for over half a year and that was your first post, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Nothing will trace you anywhere, as your email is not accessible to any non-admin.

    This surprises me as well. This school policy seems to be rather absurd. :eek:

    My school has an unusual one:

    You cannot conduct business with other students who go to that school, without reporting it to your teacher. No one really follows it though…;)

    my school has a policy against gay sex in the boys' bathroom. doesn't stop some people though.


    but back on topic, yeah, i'd certainly go ahead and delete the account. i've gotten in trouble for posts i made from my house on a private, non-school-related forum. the school used illegal methods to find out it was me but i still got in trouble.

    It doesn't matter that the online ID is non traceable backwards in some scenarios --- for example once the OP's online nick is known by someone else at their end, then it wouldn't take much to check and see if they (or another identical nickname) are on this site.

    Agreed, which is why I suggested a PM to Q... but there'd be no proof that that identity belonged to a student, and we're not in the habit of handing out email addresses.

    Were the posts somehow related to adult content, or something illegal, or somehow related to other students or faculty or something? Why on earth would they care about someone being on a forum like Macrumors?

    Mad Jew's vast collection of Donkey Porn notwithstanding.

    To be blunt, and recognizing that there's nothing I can do about it, this encroachment by school systems disgusts me. I understand the need to keep students safe. But to set online rules? I'm sorry - but there is no way that should be the prerogative of a school system. Period.

    Just my opinion. Not anything official.

    it was a forum some friends and i had started, and we principally got in trouble for posting at school, but even though we didnt post anything inappropriate from school we got in trouble for some profanity, etc. posted from home. and one member posted a link to "unholy matrix trinity" (if you dont know you dont want to) and got in trouble for that...:eek:

    NO, YOU DON'T! Schools can set any mandate chosen by the school board, that does not mean that any student in that system must abide by the conditions of that mandate off of school property or after school hours. No institution of the government (which includes all public schools in the US) may specify conduct of citizens (including minors) outside the parameters of the institutions realm of responsibility.

    In other words, when your parents are responsible for your behavior, which is all the time when you are not @ school and under 18. The school cannot make rules about your behavior. US SC Tinker v. Des Moines 1969

    This case was about war protests but it set the precedent that students had the right to participate in any legal activity off school grounds, and not on school time no matter what the school's regulations might say.

    end of song.

    Except in the case of bording schools, who assume 24 hour responsibility in loco parentis...

    Good point. Still, one wonders how MR could be considered a corrupting influence.

    Maybe the school is endowed by Michael Dell? ;)

    lººk's membership has been closed. We hate to lose a forum member, but sometimes it's necessary.

    Fare thee well, lººk.

    Shouldn't this thread be deleted too, so people can't see he was even registered here in the first place and had to ask to be unregistered? Does that make sense? :eek:

    I'll close it, and it'll settle into the muck.
