Comment Re:Teacher? Teachers... IT? (Score 1) 629

Lazy IT, sure, but we are talking about teachers here, not professional office workers. They were probably locking themselves out their systems every time they had to change their passwords which caused disruption to instructional time so the Principal ordered all passwords to be locked down to the teachers last names.

At any rate, this might deserve a talking to and perhaps some sort of school punishment. Calling in the police and bringing felony charges just confirms my above views that the teachers and principal are likely not the cream of the crop.

Better analogy still. A private dirt road connects to a new Amazon.com distribution center. Amazon complains that it's shipping is slowed by all the new traffic it is created on the road and says the person maintaining the road should pave it. Private road owner refuses to do it unless Amazon foots some of the bill. Amazon does so and everyone is happy.

Remember, the Netflix and Comcast thing was about two private corporations working out their problems without resorting to government.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
