Again! Another "anonymous" IOD basher, go figure.
Responses below:

>Some things do not go along with anarchy.
>FDA is approving the drugs we use.

RESPONSE:
- The FDA is controlled by the Federal Govt. (ICANN is not)
- Bad drugs can kill you
- The FDA would come under some pretty serious investigations if a member of the FDA also served on the board of a company who was trying to have a new drug approved. (This is basically the case with ICANN)

>FCC is approving the frequencies for our cellulars.

RESPONSE:
-Unmonitored microwave transmission devices can kill you. (Domain names can't)
-The FCC is controlled by the Federal Government (ICANN is not)
-The FCC would come under some pretty serious investigations if a member of the FCC also served on the board of a company who was trying to get awarded a license for a particular frequency. (This is basically the case with ICANN)

>ICANN is approving the TLDs the list goes on ...

RESPONSE:
-Again, ICANN is not a Federal Agency, it is a non-profit. It is an organization which has established an application and currently reviewing those applications. People from a supporting organization to ICANN (the company requesting and reviewing applications) are also on the boards of companies currently submitting applications. You feel comfortable with this?

>ICANN is here for the good of the Internet.

RESPONSE:
- ICANN has been poorly run and emits a scent of corruption. The vast majority of the Internet's users have voted in new members of ICANN who have openly spoken against almost every aspect of ICANN.

Given your anonymity, your REAL affiliation and purpose in this forum is highly suspect.
