    ICANN's Task Has Been Completed
    by Anonymous on Thursday November 01 2001, @02:59AM (#3297)
    ICANN's Task Has Been Completed

    ICANN is (was) a U.S. Government contractor
    for the infamous Green Paper-White Paper work.
    That called for 5 TLDs to be added from the
    peanut gallery. That has now happened. The
    U.S. Government can continue to manage its
    root servers, move them all to the U.S., and
    strengthen America with a more secure and stable
    Internet.

    ICANN clearly is not qualified to get involved in
    any of the serious work needed to move forward.
    Not all U.S. Government contractors are. Why is
    that so hard to understand ?

    Can the bailiff please clear the courtroom ?
    The cleaning people need to mop the floor.

    I think ICANN should be considered an internet terrorist group, and eliminated as quickly as possible. The US government has the ability to do this, and will remain a victim until it takes action.

    For all the money that has been wasted putting soldiers in innocuous places, why not spend a little and protect our international communications system!?

    US Government MUST step up!!
