my extremely crass view.

cute pictures, but ...

someone turned the lights out.  how much time and energy are we going to
put into measuring the base, diameter, screw pitch, ... of the flipping
light bulb?  they threw the bleedin' switch!  what am i actually going
to learn here?

the issues are above layer seven.  tarek kamel, a workshop student of
mine in about '93, sold his sould to the devil years ago.  the idea of
him resisting the order is silly.  i presume he has been removed, so we
can not even hope he has the chance to redeem himself as things change.

what are the implications of this class of government actions on us as
operators?  note that the american domain industrial complex caved to
the clearly illegal request to block domain names without court orders.
so do not be fooled that this is just an issue in openly repressive

isoc seems to have made a policy statement.  should the rirs?
