Don’t Ban, Shape!

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 14 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

From news.yahoo.com:

Del Mar College students now have to use computers outside the school’s system if they want to visit the popular Web site MySpace.com.

The community college has blocked the site in response to complaints about sluggish Internet speed on campus computers.

Why do they feel they need to complete ban the site and cause students to make a fit when the campus could just limit the amount of outbound traffic sent to MySpace?

  1. Bandwidth is a recurring cost, packet shaping is a one time purchase and would arguably sufficiently increase the overall performance of the network, thus paying for itself in a short amount of time.
