Relevant excerpt

Observe the Intended Use Of Your Campus Network.
In particular, your campus network may not be used to transmit threatening, obscene, or harassing e-mail.
Comply with the Laws Governing Harassment
Harassment, is any verbal or physical conduct, on or off campus, which has the intent or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's or group's educational or work performance or which creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational or work environment. Harassment on the basis of race, color, gender, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or age includes harassment of an individual in terms of a stereotyped group characteristic, or because of that person's identification with a particular group... Sending unwanted and/or offensive e-mail or messages may constitute harassment and is in violation of the intended use of the system. Use appropriate language. Profanity or obscenity will not be tolerated on your campus network. Each of us should use language appropriate for the intended recipient. Avoid offensive or inflammatory speech. Personal attacks are an unacceptable use of the network.
