    User #3968 Info
    i can't decide if the poster works out of k street for the usg, milking the "freedom (museum) vs axis of weevils" mantra for the moron market, or out of reston, wraping vgrs in the stars and bars. both appear to map to the same shallow jingoisms.

    this is my last browser click on icannwatch. icann is nearly worthless, and icannwatch now has about the same value. its a marriage of equals.

    EBW must spend all day in chat rooms with "Vint"

        * From: Eric Brunner-Williams at a VSAT somewhere
        * Date: Fri Sep 30 18:30:27 2005

    > And they did violate US laws in the US.

    An export regulation, one normally punished by a fine.

    > Ah well, maybe they will get deported when they get released from prison,
    > just like their wives.

    There is an interesting register of export violaters, and quite a few are
    foreign nationals, and quite a few are also ... obscure ... like arguing
    that a Pentium processor constitutes a nuclear proliferation asset. Over
    the past three years, only one violation has ressulted in the seizure  of
    all business assets and business records.

    As I pointed out to Vint some months ago, if the same standards were
    applied to Worldcom's Bernie the Bandit, Vint could have been in the
    pokey too, and even his Worldcom pencil sharpener would have a DOJ do
    not remove under penalty of law seal on it.

    Is it jingoistic to be something other than a socialist?

    I find it laughable that you admonish the poster for believing that the Internet should not be handed over to the "global community."

    You accuse the poster of jingoism -- but I wonder if you realize that Globalism is your religion.

    Drink the Coolaid. Drink it down and suck up the last of the poison.
