    "As for ICANN : well, it refuses even to regulate its own registries or accredited registrars... how then, can we expect it to regulate the rest of the world!"

    "WE" don't. But you just don't get that, do you?

    batasuna=HB=EH=ETA has killed more 800 innocent pe
    by Anonymous on Sunday September 01 2002, @01:06PM (#8889)
    more reasons? Why it serves the freedom of expression if not even you have the right to the life? The Spaniards we are tired to hold the murders, threats and estorsion of ETA and his formacion batasuna.25 years of democracy and always have been supporting and helping the terrorists. Financing it economicamente, giving refuge them and obeying to ETA always. They have killed politicos, children, women, simple workers... and batasuna always justifies the deaths. Politica is not done threatening and killing, in 25 years they have demonstrated that they do not know to make another thing. Here I leave the sentence of the judge of the national audience.If you know Spanish you must read all the reasons for his ilegalizacion. Auto de procesamiento de Ilegalidad de batasuna

    You are such a dork, how in the hell can you support freedom of speech for people who are killing hundreds every year in terrorist attacks? This is a case of terrorism, and believe me that, if it happened in the US, the site would be banned by now.

    SOME IMPORTANT THINGS
    by Anonymous on Tuesday September 03 2002, @02:11PM (#8986)
    First of all, said that BATASUNA si not a political party. BASASUNA IS AN ORGANICED TERRORIST GROUP.
    Second, US and Spain have signed some pacts against terrorist groups.
    Third: Freedom of speech? of people who have killed hundred of inocents?

    I think it's a bit ironical. AMERICA can KILL INOCENTS out of her frontiers looking for Osama, and Spain dont "have a right to tell an American organisation what to do? " And the thing we want to do is close a web of a terrorist group.

    It's stupid...

    There some interestiong points here...

    And does Spanish law have a right to tell an American organisation what to do?

    Do I have to remember you that USA government permits USA criminal hunters to 'extract' (kidnap) suspects from any country in the world?

    Surely, the activities of people IN Spain (viewing the Internet, writing for websites) is an internal matter for the legal processes there.

    So it's only a matter of WHO they're killing? What if an american tourist got killed by accident in a bomb car attack?

    ... intervene in censoring online material. For example, grotesque and brutal child-porn would obviously invite intervention on its perpetrators...

    There's nothing bad with assasination but child-porn is a no-no?

    But what about freedom of speech and the right to engage in political debate?

    Freedom of Speech to designate target for their assasins? They have done it before.

    Is assasination then a political 'tool'?


    Would the Christians in the early Roman Empire have had their websites banned if they'd been online in those days?

    Did Chirstians sacrifice or kill innocent people? If they did, then they (we) should be banned at all.

    Is the IRA a group of freedom fighters or are they enemies of the state?

    Let me re-formulate this question: Can be cosidered 'freedom fighters' a group of people that explodes a car bomb in crowded street and kill childs and mothers alike? (I believe not.)


    So, in the end the point is that YOU dont get it. It's not a matter of political debate (I'll leave my political opinion for another ocassion). It's a matter of life or death.

    Did you learn nothing on September 11, 2001? Would you like to see an open website defending Bin Laden and recruiting people for his 'army'?

    Ante todo decir que estoy totalmente en contra de la politica de batasuna , y mas todavia de ETA
    pero lo que no se puede hacer es tirar un partido politico por que no condene atentados.. de esta manera lo unico que se esta haciendo es darle mas razoens a ETA pa que siga cargandose a banda..
    y lo peor de todo.. es que el jodido PP esta haciendo una movida politica de todo esto..
    en fin..

    Could ICANN evolve into a function of the United Nations? Remove certain tlds from Virginia jursidiction and place under the UN?

    Dissenting political opinion is one thing, deliberately injuring or killing innocent people is quite another matter and those that do are criminals and need to be dealt with as such. Hasn't the world had enough of terrorism? How many more must die or be hurt? It doesn't matter what your culture, color or creed is, we all bleed red. It's a small planet. Let's all focus on peace.
