  1. User accounts for e-mail and WWW pages are for current students, faculty, and staff. Applying for an account under false pretenses is a punishable disciplinary offense.

  5. Any unauthorized, deliberate action which damages or disrupts a computing system, alters its normal performance, or causes it to malfunction is a violation regardless of system location or time duration.
