    OK, spewmeister, I'll admit you (rarely) get it right, like that it's it all an ISOC conspiracy to drain our precious bodily fluids. So what?

    I've said already that I'm one of the few to get some of your obvious references, let alone some of the more obscure ones. Why keep hammering at it? If almost no-one gets it now, do you really expect some future digital archeologist to grab a few of your bits and fit them together correctly to say Eureka, here Anon knew it all along, and they weren't listening, no wonder they fell into decline so that you, long in your grave, can assume an attitude of smugness? Good on you. You win. So go away. I'm willing to concede that this wiser than all of thou attitude isn't just a quirk of the maggots eating you from within. CSI ICANN, film at 11.

    It's fairly easy to get over this spectacle, I just change my netkook nutbar mod settings to plus one and you disappear, which I'm about to do now, there's nothing to see here, move along.

    Assuming I'm not just committing the fox paw of addressing an annoybot who can't decipher, CUL8R. -g

    ICANN Thought Police Force Starts to Take Shape

    ICANN Thought Police Force Starts to Take Shape

    As predicted, ICANN Registrars and employees will
    be **self-deputized** as the new InterPOL. If you
    want to see how this works, check out CUBA.
    Every idle housewife is a government snitch.
    Block-captains run around reporting on every
    move everyone makes. The insiders (pro-Castro
    crowd) are of course immune from any scrutiny.
    That is how a con man like Vinton Cerf is able
    to help defraud the U.S. of $11 BILLION dollars
    without notice, until it is too late.

    LUXEMBOURG, 10 JULY 2005-06-01
