    It Seeks Overall Control - ISOC
    by Anonymous on Monday September 13 2004, @06:55PM (#14140)
    Vinton Cerf's little closed society called the
    ISOC is only part of the problem. There are
    some very evil people who are not really part
    of the ISOC.

    Joe Sims is of course at the top of the list of
    really evil people. He is tied to the U.S.
    Government's Department of Justice (DOJ). His
    mind-set is one of slash and burn and bully
    his way to solutions that may appear to work
    short-term on the net, but long-term people will
    walk away.

    Marilyn Cade (AT&T) is also another at the top
    of the list of really evil people. She is not
    an ISOC type. She of course uses her stooge
    Steve Bellovin from the ISOC, NANOG, etc. to
    help her do her dirty work. It is unfortunate
    that clueless U.S. Government people listen to
    a bimbo like Marilyn Cade, but when the AT&T
    name is used like a sword, they bow.

    Mike Roberts was of course also a member of the
    really evil crowd. He did not last long, but
    he did his share of damage, along with Esther
    Dyson who is not really evil, just shallow and
    self-promoting, like Farber.

    There are about 52 people who could be showcased
    on a deck of playing cards. Unfortunately, that
    would continue to help promote them. They thrive
    on that promotion. Look at Vinton Cerf, what a
    sad example of a human he is. Why showcase him
    on a deck of cards ?

    The best 99.9% of the human race can do is to
    work to route around the ISOC and the really
    evil people they use as tools. The tecnologists
    have now put all of the pieces in place. People
    just have to start using them.

    Sure, there will be evil people who attempt to
    censor all messages and rewrite history, but
    they can not change what is carried in people's
    heads and is written down and passed on to
    future generations. It is all a sad chapter in
    the history of human-kind and history will show
    that to be the case. People can do better and
    will do better. If they continue to allow the
    ISOC and a small collection of really evil
    people to dominate their communication networks
    they might as well not be connected.

    See ya.

    Re:Move Away from the ISOC - Switch Address Spaces
    by Anonymous on Monday September 13 2004, @07:23PM (#14142)
    The ISOC hates NAT. Deploy NAT technology.

    Create your own digital island with non-colliding
    addresses behind your firewall. When others in
    your area do the same, then you route directly
    to them and bypass the ISOC.

    You can see why the ISOC hates NAT.
