College Students and Internet Gossip Sites

Honestly, the first thing I thought when I read this article about internet gossip sites, and how college students are using them, was "The students using these sites are the same people who expect the taxpayers to pay for their education and who took over school buildings to protest a fee hike."

The kinds of comments that used to be scrawled inside a bathroom stall are now posted for the world to read on Web sites encouraging college students to talk trash about their classmates.
That girl in the picture, the one with her pants pulled down for all to see*? She was probably yelling at university administrators that she shouldn't have to pay more for college.

*The linked article mentions such pictures on the gossip sites but certainly doesn't show any. In the paragraph above I was taking artistic license to make my point.
