They did give me something in return; they didn't take legal action against 
me. If I had not signed it; they would have taken legal action against me in 
court and/or suspended me from school. So basically; they gave me my right 
to a public education, and to free speech. However; they said that if there 
are any further incidents; they will immediately suspend my account on their 
school network and take legal action and/or suspension against me. This 
happened a little over a year ago; so I'm not sure if it's even still valid. 
They just think that since I knew about Microsoft's security problems, that 
I had compromised their systems (even when I explained to them that I found 
out about the vulnerabilities through publicly available sources, and it was 
there own fault for advertising that they had all of those insecure 
products).
