A technical solution to a social problem will never be complete. It's
better to just boot the students for a week or two if they use
something inappropriate. A comparison would be if they were using
inappropriate book covers or posted an inappropriate picture on their
locker. You would discipline the student, not try to make it
impossible to put a picture on their lockers. :-)
