Hi Jason,

Why not? Perhaps not the philosophy department, but why shouldn't
addresses assigned for use by students in the dorms be treated the
same as ISP assignments to their customers? Why does one class of
registrant get to treat its assignments to customer equipment one way
while another class of registrants has it harder?

Why don't we have one class of customer with two rule sets: report
your internal use this way, report your assignments to customer
equipment that way. Would that not be more fair?

Votes, for one thing.
