    Re: U.N. to Seek Control of the Internet

    The Internet is so incredibly beneficial to the world and poses no threat, the UN wouldn't compromise that.

    The US should never relinquish control of the Internet. The Internet has flourished on US leadership, and it's not worth the chance of screwing it up. This is way too important to let the UN just willy-nilly take over.
    The UN does not want to take control of the Internet... most countries want the US to loose control because of its abuse of the system time and time again. The obvious place to put such control is the UN, most likely in an organisation under the UN... like UNESCO and WHO and WTO.

    A couple countries are supporting strict controls that nobody else supports. Apparently this translates to UN TRYIN TO BREAK MY INTERNETS.

    Do you think it's proper for the US to be able to prevent a German citizen from accessing a German website while in Germany?

    Yes, because we are 'Merica gosh darn-it. If it were not for Al Gore inventing the thing, it would be much more difficult to illegally download the songs that Tipper Gore wanted banned.
