Subject: Quote by Vint Cerf at Worldcom : "Let us punish those who abuse the Internet's privileges"


"The Internet is for everyone - but it won't be if we are not responsible in its use and mindful of the rights of others who share its wealth. Let us dedicate ourselves to the responsible use of this new medium and to the proposition that with the freedoms Internet enables comes a commensurate responsibility to use these powerful enablers with care and consideration. For those who choose to abuse these privileges, let us dedicate ourselves to developing the necessary tools to combat the abuse and punish the abuser."

"Let us dedicate ourselves to ... punish the abuser..." Well ICANN shows no sign of dealing with registrars who abuse the system, so is Vint Cerf at Worldcom just dedicated to fancy words, words, words...?
