To answer that question, you’ll have to refer to their Terms and Conditions for Use of GO WUSTL.
Local St.Louis Progressive blogger Adam Shriver who, after a quick visit to his political blog at STLActivistHub.Blogspot.com, appears to have made his popularity by being one of the heads of the local hit-squad against local radio personality Dana Loesch and the St.Louis Tea Party.
Adam, like may other local radical groups, has thrown his support behind the ‘permanent vacation’ crowd of OccupySTL – local branch of the Occupy Wall Street. Last Friday, this group protested in downtown St.Louis when they received large amounts of traffic-stopping union support. What looked more like a lovefest for Big Labor, they continue to try to market themselves as a “For the People” movement while most people were still at work during their afternoon protest/parade.
For those outside the range of St.Louis attention, Mr. Shriver is a graduate student at Washington University. While most people recognize that using your employer’s email address to help market and push your radical agenda might not be too kool, this apparently did not ocurr to Mr. Shriver as Dana Loesch pointed out in this graphic:
For many years Washington University has enjoyed the reputation of being an educational institution that provides exceptional learning in many different fields. Granted, I didn’t think philosophy was one of those areas, but I could be wrong. It may be too early to tell if WashU is going to actually enforce their own Terms & Conditions of Use regulations in the case of Mr. Shriver, but if they do nothing then does this set a new precedence for acceptable use of the school’s website?
Will we next see another “grad student” use their email to help organize or promote Communists, anarchists, or antisemitic Naxis?
Or taken from a different angle, does this mean that Tea Party-supporting, pro-Constitution students can use their email address to help promote Tea Party events?
Whatever WashU administrators decide, it should be consistent.
As a side note: I’d like to send a message to any Tea Party-supporting students at WashU. If WashU does decides to do nothing to enforce their own regulations, I’d like to offer you the use of my blog to help promote your contact info with your WashU email address.
