    It would be interesting to assemble a list of names
    of the Top 100 people most responsible for the
    glorious ICANN.

    What is amazing is that there would probably be
    a couple dozen people who would be the first in
    line to sign-up to make sure their name was in
    lights below the ICANN banner.

    What outsiders do not understand is that the
    insiders have been working together for dozens
    of years and they think they are doing the right
    thing. It is a shame to see the U.S. Government
    used by the small clique and for the general
    population to be cowed by these narrow-minded
    people. Eventually, freedom will be restored, but
    it will take work. Fortunately, many many people
    are working outside of ICANN to free the world
    from the ICANN monster, which is no different
    than the Taliban monster.

    It makes me sick when people try to compare groups to the Taliban. As bad ICANN has acted (which some would say they haven't acted badly at all, they just haven't listened to that many different viewpoints before acting), NOTHING ICANN has done can be compared to the atrocities committed by the Taliban & al Qaida. Go ahead and make the comparison for effect, but think a little about the people in NY, DC, PA and on those planes before you write such stupid comments.
