Relevant excerpt

Grinnell College supports the free expression and exchange of ideas and opinions and hopes that users of its computer systems will actively explore the possibilities of electronic publication on the World Wide Web. The College encourages students, faculty, and staff to develop and publish WWW pages through its servers (www.grinnell.edu, www.lib.grin.edu, web.grinnell.edu, and www.math.grin.edu).

Exercising one’s right to free speech in an academic community, however, also entails some responsibilities that authors should be aware of:

It is improper and inappropriate to use the College’s World Wide Web servers purposely to annoy, abuse, libel, threaten, or harass anyone, individually or collectively, or to violate state or federal laws.
