Subject: Think Again:  Do You Really Want The FCC To Control ICANN?


        The FCC is a board of relatively old men.  There's one guy, who's over 80 years old (no kidding).  He's the guy who decides what you listen to on the radio.  His guidelines for censorship are from within his own personal morals and opinions, not yours nor mine.  He's the guy who decided (a few years back) that it was okay to say the word "penis" on the Donahue show, but not on FM radio.  Of course, now you hear that word everywhere. 

This has been a few years, but I fear the same demographics exist within the FCC.  I really don't want another government entity, especially the FCC, having anything to do with Internet policy or content.

If you think things are a mess now, just get a second government entity to oversee the first!
