Changes in Bad Taste

I understand why the start time of the Bad Taste concert needs to be moved back. But I do not understand why the administration has decided to stop people from “camping out” in front of 10-250.

As I understand it, there is nothing prohibiting MIT students from standing, sitting, or sleeping anywhere on campus, provided they do not constitute a safety hazard. To say that students cannot happen to wait in the same place for a certain reason makes no more sense than saying, for example, that all students must attend classes.

While I acknowledge this letter will be published too late to be meaningful, I hope groups line up in defiance of this rule, because this is our campus.
