We had some difficulties with college administrators that resulted in, 
"The question is not 'are you paranoid?';
the question is 'are you paranoid enough?'"
("There is no expectation of privacy for any actions taken on the 
college's computers nor telephones", even one administrator who would 
temporarily join Yahoo groups in order to search archives for any 
disparaging remarks!  [Hey, John W, eat shit and die!])
