        If you're a Rate My Teachers mod, you basically get to scan the comments on the new reviews and go through and look at the old. This is so that bogus teachers aren't created (if someone made a Miss Appleby who taught science and she wasn't a teacher at my school I'd delete her) and so that offensive ratings aren't posted as per RMT's guidelines (for example, I could not leave one that said "Mr. Smith is a fat tub of lard").

          I remember when laser pointers were big. Those were banned instantly when I was in 8th grade.

              They don't allow us to bring iPods or other music devices. A really good thing is that they banned guns.

                  Coca-Cola was banned for students
                  Gameboys were banned
                  When kids got bored the teachers would say they don't care
                  At car rider dismissal you weren't allowed on these Modern Woodmen benches

                  C'mon what's wrong with these things

                    It seemed like everything was banned in school. The one I most remember is no hats. Elementary school seemed so care free but once you hit middle school we had a dress code for physical education and I'm sure other restrictions.

                        When Walkmans first came out we were allowed to bring them to school, but I think that changed.

                          Sadly it doesn't end with school. Most job have stupid rules too. My company doesn't allow cell phones at our desk. Not even to browse the web when its slow. The worry is someone will use the camera or texting to capture credit card and social security info. They also banned tennis shoes, hoodies and blankets because it looks ghetto to visitors.

                          As far as school pagers were banned and so were baggy pants. Both were very popular at the time and most did it anyway. The same with walkmens, playing card, dice and dominoes. Luckily they didn't enforce these things too much. Probably because they had bigger issues to worry about.

                          While kids do tend to abuse freedom the main reasons for these stupid rules is control. The administrators feel that any freedom will cause them to lose control over their students. Unfortunately this often times suppresses free thinking and creativity. As we know many of the worlds greatest inventors and entrepreneurs were not model students. This leads some to question the whole concept of school.

                            Game Boys were banned at my middle school, but I brought it anyway. I was playing Pokemon Red and I wasn't gonna let anything stand between me and beating Gary to achieve the glory! Except for the principal who took my Game Boy away.

                              There were benches, that you weren't allowed to sit on? I don't get it.

                                Some teachers would let us, however. One was Mr. Thomas (the 4th grade writing teacher). The 3rd grade teachers also let us on the benches.

                                  When I was in 3rd or 4th grade this kid named Chris got suspended for cussing out a teacher when he got in trouble at recess.


                                  The book series Dork Diaries was often mistaken for Diary of a Wimpy Kid.


                                  The field day shirts were always the same.


                                  Trading snacks and lunches was banned.


                                  Useless things were banned: Tetris handhelds, Duran Duran photos, and disposable cameras.

                                    It's not only schools with very strict policies, but also militaries and the Boy Scouts.

                                      When I was in 2nd or 3rd grade this kid wore a US Polo Assn. shirt with the n covered up. I told on him but I got in trouble instead, the teachers disagreed with the fact it can be mistaken for a cuss

                                        You shouldn't have told on something so frivolous. Tattle tells sucked in school. I think most kids that were with it didn't tell on other kids.
