Subject: TRUE REPORT: The War of the Roots


The USA government's DARPA created the Internet [DARPAnet] at great expense to the overtaxed American working stiffs.

American corporations extended the networks at great expense to their shareholders.

America invited the world to join the Internet.

Now some want to destroy that Internet with alt roots that conflict with the Internet [including the new TLD's authorized by ICANN, which was delegated such authority by the USA government].

And the alt roots' lackeys then accuse the Internet defenders of being jackboots and usurpers.  ROFLMAO. LOL.

Alt roots could easily use alternate protocols [ahttp for websites, aftp for file transfers, @@ for email].  Then there would be zero conflict between colliding TLD's.  By not doing so, the alt roots are trying to prevent ICANN from introducing any meaningful new TLDs. [All good TLD's have already been taken by alt root registries.]
