True, the discussion is stil diverged and unfucused. But i expect it to 
converge on the key questions again ( unless we kill it off).

The real point is "how to repair current state with RIR's allowing 
spammer to rule " and "how do we get Internet back to responsibility"

Beeing polite won't help us now, we need to find real arguments and
better ways of dealing with abuse.

A delicate balance is needed, not censorship but self-regulation is needed.

The danger is spam and abuse on one side, political control on the other. 
If "we" cannot fix this one of the above will take control.

Now, constructive suggestions please!
