GOVERNMENT REGULATION. We have plenty of laws that can be applied to spam and other _gross_ abuses of the Internet. We do not need a branch of the FBI for the Internet. Fraud is fraud if it is done by mail or e-mail. Denial of service attacks are clearly against the law in many countries, states and provinces. I do not think we wish the heavy hand of government(s) attempting to regulate content that is, for the most part, out of our control or poking it's nose into routing policies and peering agreements. IMHO - Cooperation among ISPs can do more than any government can. Cooperation can cross borders with far more ease than government agents. (lest they are spies) -- From: Joseph T.

It will be because we cannot set a direction and march collectively into the future. -- http://info.isoc.org/internet-history/#Future - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
