RE: Allocation of IP Addresses

The UN is fine with me...

No matter what happens...the following can not continue...

  1. One person at the InterNIC playing Jesus Christ with the IP addresses...
  2. One person at IANA playing God the Father with IP addresses...
  3. Network Solutions, Inc. (and SAIC) competing against ISPs...
  4. Selected ISPs being given huge blocks of the address space...

There has to be a democratic process...of the people, for the people and by the people...

...not just for John, Paul, George and Ringo....even if John is the Pope...
