Re: [Membership] The People's Republic of ICANN?



WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE to want to disenfranchise me??? restrict to domain

All people who use ISPs like LYCOS, GEOCITIES,AOL  don't count? Nonsense.

if the presenters on the Senate floor can get emotional - so can I

Do these comments indicate a preference for limiting
