If somebody has root access to a computer that is connected to the
internet, she or he can download and install anything that this computer
can download. For example, she can install dosage from the upstream
sources, or just download the comics manually.

If the computer has access only via a restrictive filtering proxy, this
is prevented. But then you can as well let them install dosage.
