This is horrible, don't you realize that the GA is a place where the
rights of netizens ain't discussed. Ah jiminey christmas who empowered
you to to make statements standing for us guys anyhow. What are we going

the U.S. Senate and they say "as long as you guys take care of it, and
we are serious about more international representation we will back off",
but they are talking no more Boardsqautters, and open and transparent stuff

The e-Bill of Rights
Few understand what the many may suffer.
Access to the Internet is an inalienable right of the people
-- all the people. Events now swirl and confuse even the hardiest
of die-hard evangelists and prophets but we must collectively make one
thing clear: we will not sit and watch the elite few wrest control from
the people, we will not stand by as our rights are trampled and destroyed.
We have power in numbers and we have truth, justice, and freedom as wind
in our sails.
We the people, in order to form a more perfect union of minds and hearts,
mandate the need for freedom and fairness in our ability to enjoy the benefits
of the on-line world of the Internet. We mandate freedom of speech,
freedom of access, and freedom of will to let the powers-that-be fully
understand our needs and motivations. We do not ask! We are
the people who the Internet serves. We are where true power does
We claim full rights to organize ourselves and politicize the issues
we deem important. We claim the right to enjoy the full protections
offered to all for accessibility, use, and indeed dependence on the Internet
as an important part of our lives and livelihoods.
Our right to accessibility includes the protection and un-fettered use
of domain name system addresses which we hold and hold dearly as extensions
of our personal, political, and commercial selves.
While we recognize and respect the traditional intellectual property
laws and protections, we take exception to all attempts to modify or extend
these traditions into newly mis-formed mutations which unfairly impinge
upon the rights of individuals and the common masses. We will not
stand idly by and allow these actions to go un-noticed or allow the perpetrators
to go un-punished. We will fight if we need to fight. We will
We are the people and we have spoken!
