My point being, a degree in computer science should reflect the student's
ability in computer science - not compliance with some arbirary moral
compass dreamt up in a university board somewhere.

Who gave these university beaurocrats the power to exclude this young
person from the education system?  Why is their moral compass deemed to be
correct?  I thought university lecturers held positions due to their
talents in their respective susbjects - not becuase of their ability to
implement social policy?

Doesn't matter if he ends up a corporate knob or a freedom fighter.  If
he says "I promise to XYZ" you want him to be trustworthy on said
promise.

You might want to ask the guys in Anonymous who got ratted out by one
of their own how they feel about the word "trustworthy" regarding the
rat who said "I promise not to rat you out".

There is no honor among thieves (or corporations, or lawyers, or...)
