Getting Detention For Being Efficient

High Schooler Gets Detention for Using Firefox?, Gizmodo

"Today in class [name] had a program launched called Foxfire.exe. I had told [name] to close the program and to resume work but he told me that is was just a different browser and that he was doing his work. I had given him two warnings but he insisted that it was just a "better" browser and he wasn't doing anything wrong. I had then issued his detention."

Editor's update: Looks like this was a widely-propagated hoax.
