A Perfect Way To Block Spam: Shut Off Your Computer!

The IT department at Guam Community College decided they didn't like spam, and didn't want to do anything to block it. So instead, they blocked email! All emails originating from Hotmail and Yahoo, the #1 and #2 email providers, will be bounced back. Quite a stupid policy. What else can people use? Since they are not blocking actual spam, but only email, any other service students use are likely to get banned in the future. Why not just ban all email? And ban the internet to protect from viruses. And to be on the safe side, just to be sure no one reformats the hard drive, shut off the computer, lock it in a safe, and throw the safe in the ocean!
