Slashdot Says “Avoid U. Florida”

Ok, it's schadenfreude but what good, or even indifferent, U.Miami booster would not have at least a tinge of joy at opening up Slashdot and finding an item entitled Schools to Avoid: University of Florida. Seems that UF has adopted a fairly Draconian and quite silly policy to prevent P2P filesharing violations. Step One: intrusive scans of every student's PC in the dorms using a program called ICARUS. Wired has an article saying it's all just dandy, but that's not what the students say. The student paper called it evil

And, no, the “michael” who submitted that item to Slashdot is a different Michael from this one.
