college student plays around a university’s insecure mail server. sysad replies with a very unprofessional email bluff, sent to all recipients. student wasn’t traced, but submitted himself to the school officials. they suspended the student, even threatening him for expulsion.
seriously? why are you destroying a kid’s future? the only person worthy for suspension or termination is the university’s sysad for being incompetent.
My friend Ridvan posted something that caught my attention, the student should not be reprimanded but should be guided.
