    the most chilling statements:

    “When you use public infrastructures you can not be anonymous”

    “,,,because each user interacts with other users and with the system operator: thus we have license plates on cars,,,”

    “public infrastructures are "generally available to the public," and have important characteristics and user expectations such as substantial availability (especially during and after emergencies), and for the protection of users.”

    “These are the FCC's most important Title I responsibilities, and are shared today with the President, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Justice. Providers and users of these public infrastructure services in exchange for ubiquitous access to national and global networks, undertake obligations and responsibilities established in law, regulations, and technical standards.”
