another parting gift from Obama , they’ll never stop him ,they have no clue what the internet is
Who gave these guys the title and deed to “the internet” ?
I understand that when you fund the equipment, you own it and thus can seize control of it.
But the existence of TOR is proof positive that they aren’t the ONLY people in control.
Granted, TOR is worthless without the ARPA backbone, the government owned lines and routers and all that stuff. But back in the mid 90s I was “building the internet” in Vermont and New Hampshire. We literally paid to have phone lines installed in a private residence, put a computer and a small modem bank in the closet and connected the two states.
Granted, we weren’t watching porn on it but we were getting the most valuable data we’ve ever had access to. Text based, no ads and whole world of possibilities for the future.
We’ll do it again. Computers are cheaper now and modem routers are capable of much more.
Obama must destroy the internet and control what’s left for his revolution.
It has worked well. WHY does The One want to give it away?
This issue is about control of the non-profit group who assigns Internet Protocol Numbers and the corresponding domain names. (Every domain name, for example freerepublic.com, has a corresponding IP address, 220.127.116.11 in this case.)
nobama, in his push to destroy the US, has decided that ICANN needs to be controlled by the world, not the US. IMHO, doing this would expose the Internet to all sorts of perils and is not a good idea. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
