    What is the racial make-up of the self-appointed ICANN Board ?

    What is the religious make-up of the self-appointed ICANN Board ?

    What are the Board member's sexual preferences ?

    What sex were they born and what are they now ?

    What is their age ?

    What is their income range ?

    What is the net worth of each ICANN Board member ?

    What high-school did each ICANN Board member go to ?

    How many ICANN Board members went to the same high-school as Jon Postel, Steve Crocker, Vint Cerf and yes even Karl Auerbach.

    ICANN's policies have fostered an unsecure Internet.

    For years, experts have been pointing out that there are more secure architectures that allow people more privacy and permit law enforcement organizations to enforce the laws while protecting people's rights to free speech. ICANN has rejected those other architectures and controlled the Internet for their pleasure and non-profit deal making with foreign governments. ICANN is now in danger of being "found out", as the U.S. Government looks closely at ALL groups with a cause.

    Does the ICANN and IETF Internet Architecture make it easier for terrorists to go undetected ?
    If yes, does that place ICANN on the side of the
    terrorists ?

    Has ICANN decided to change its annual meeting
    agenda in order to distract U.S. Government
    officials from what has really been going on behind
    the scenes at ICANN ?

    Will the U.S. Government continued to be fooled
    by the ICANN insiders, many of whom are not U.S.
    citizens, and who seek to use the Internet to
    dictate their views to the world ?

    When will the U.S. Government wake up and realize
    that ICANN is not in the best interest of the American people ?

    Look at all of the true Americans who have moved
    to New.Net, via Prodigy, @Home, Earthlink, etc. in
    order to protect themselves from the ICANN agenda. They will not have their information flow
    terrorized by the ICANN Board and the small group
    of ICANN zealots who seek to control the freedoms
    of people who want to use the Internet for fun and

    Most Americans would probably sleep better if they
    knew that the 13 legacy root servers were securely
    in the hands of the U.S. Government and/or U.S.
    companies and citizens.

    The current kooks who run the 13 legacy root name
    servers can not be assumed to be loyal to the
    American people and the U.S. Government.

    Many of the alternate roots and TLD operators
    denied access by the ICANN control freaks are
    MORE loyal to the American people and the U.S.
    Government. It is time that the U.S. Government
    recognize that it helped to create the ICANN
    monster and it now needs to replace it with a
    more secure infrastructure.
