Bebo...

is now banned in college, ha!
All I have been seeing for weeks is people on this site.
A huge number of students complained, or so the message goes. Hopefully they will not flock to sites I actually like and get tehm banned similarily.
In summation, I find it funny. I'm getting emails saying, oh noes, bebo is banned, and it gives me a good laugh.

i was on the bus home on friday last, and this girl sits behind me, and asks the guy who she's sitting with can she go on bebo from his laptop, the guy had t explain to her the whole concept of wireless internet and why the bus didnt have it.
Thats why i hate bebo, and yes, i'm on it, but only to see pictures that friends put up, though i always tell them to use photobucket

Choking up computer usage... queues are literally out the door in most colleges to get on the computers - and it's stopping people from doing genuine academic work. That'd be the main problem. Plus it's hogging bandwidth - though that's less of a problem.

But thats not the only site people use. Most people use the college computers for browsing random sites rather than finding info related to their course. A bit over the top me thinks.

I don't go to Galway but, recently, in DCU, I did a survey (with my eyes) and, of 26 people in a computer room, 18 were on Bebo. A bit f'ing ridiculous if you ask me.

I didnt think that many people were using it. I dont like the idea of having alot of info about yourself on the net thats why I dont use it. But 70% of people is f***ing crazy

Hence why a deluge of complaints were recieved and hence why it was banned.

They haven't done a very good job blocking it, since there are 3 people in my view on the site right now...

Things are there to be gotten around.

At least since it is banned most people won't be able to use it. Then again I don' care, it's not like I ever have to line up for a pc.
