OK...so the purpose of a university is learning. Creating P2P networks using
their equipment consumes bandwidth that other who are not P2P are having
problems...Is this a problem? If they want to register their P2P as research
then let it get some peer review (no pun intended)..otherwise I have little
sympathy...unlike today's students, Visa and Mastercard considered us bad risks
when I was in school.
