My apologies to all for this, specially to those who already know about this 
and those who think too little of it.

I am really worried about this:


If these rootless people get control of what goes through the root servers, we 
will loose the last free medium of expression and info exchange that is not 
owned by a corporation or anybody.

I don't know if I should be worried or not, but if my worries are founded and 
this comes to pass, as far as I can see, it will be the end of this great tool 
as we know it today.

There is a petition going on here:


There are a lot of Americans on this list that have a lot more power than the 
rest of us to change this. A LOT of people from all over the world is signing 
this petition.

I hope at least some don't judge me to be over dramatic here but this 
situation sounds very much so.

I hope that most of you (if not all) replicates this and that I don't get 
scalded for this post.

I can only hope ....
