    By Social Networking Sites, I presume it means sites like Myspace, etc?

    I don't think its that harsh really. Most libraries have only recently moved into full internet usage and to be honest, having someone hog resources just because they want to comment on other myspace sites would pretty much annoy the hell out of me.

    Most state computers restrict you as it is...
