    America is at war !!
    by Anonymous on Sunday September 16 2001, @10:21AM (#2354)

    America is at war !!
    The negative view is that America is at
    war against terrorists and evil doers.

    The positive is that America is promoting FREEDOM.

    ICANN is NOT about FREEDOM.

    ICANN supporters are terrorists.

    The ICANN Board should be brought to justice.

    Will America start with ICANN and end the terrorism ICANN has enacted on the Internet community ?

    ICANN Watch is a Fraud Against Freedom
    by Anonymous on Sunday September 16 2001, @01:00PM (#2357)

    ICANN Watch is a Fraud Against Freedom.

    ICANN Watch CENSORS the postings.

    ICANN Watch is as much a part of the problem as ICANN.

    Why is ICANN Against Freedom ?
    by Anonymous on Sunday September 16 2001, @02:28PM (#2359)

    Why is ICANN Against Freedom ?

    Why did ICANN oppose over 40 companies who were each robbed of over $50,000 applying for a TLD ?

    Why is the Afghan Taliban against Freedom ?

    What is the difference in the Afghan Taliban and ICANN ?

    America does not need to be the world's UN
    by Anonymous on Sunday September 16 2001, @05:18PM (#2362)

    America does not need to continue to have the UN.

    America does not need to support ICANN.

    America does not need to handicap ourselves with the censored ICANN.

    Let Karl Bildt and Esther Dyson run ICANN out of Sweden and/or East Germany and let them pay for it. Maybe New York can get some peace.

    New.Net is a much better example of America's Internet. Creativity is allowed.

    Maybe the UN can be moved to Australia. Let Australia handle Pakistan. They are closer.

    Americans need to wake up. Canada does not
    waste its money policing the world. Canada, the
    U.S. and Mexico can build a better Internet,
    and live in peace.

    America's leaders do not need to keep trying to
    be the king of the hill. Let someone else take a turn.
