Students at Pope John XIII Regional High School in Sparta, New Jersey have been told to "dismantle" any personal web sites which contain profiles or identifying information. Those who don't will be suspended. The order affects students with accounts on popular sites such as MySpace and Xanga. While the students complain that an order which so broadly affects their personal, non-school related life is a violation of their constitutional free speech protections, experts argue the private nature of the school makes the action legal, if ill-advised.
