Well said.

No. The UN should be abolished.

No, although greater security should be attached to the internet particularly over personal details.

Agreed.

Hell no. It would be the end of the world as we knew it.

I like it the way it is now.

I would like to see .xxx as an ending code, to seperate out some of the cinema for adult viewing.

The UN would just f*ck it up.

Well most people says nobody should have control over it which I agree with in principle. But there are ALREADY several governing bodies.

In practice, SOMEBODY needs to look after the internet's basic structures such as the few domain name servers. Without the domain name servers ALL web page addresses would stop working. And whoever does, partially controls the internet by dafault.

The private sector body ICANN is currently in control of URLS for example.

Other organisations are The Internet Society and W3C.

Nobody controls the internet as such but it's a very grey area. There's a few organisations that have a lot of say.

No f()cking way.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/1/06 - 4:52:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
no its fine how it is
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/1/06 - 4:54:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why does everyone want the internet all of a sudden?
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/1/06 - 4:57:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Until the UN learns to govern its own officials it shouldn't be allowed to govern the internet. And even then it shouldn't be allowed to control the internet.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 9/26/06 - 8:19:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/16/06 - 8:21:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
eh
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/24/06 - 11:09:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
For what reasons?

15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/29/06 - 4:51:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
HA! Every opinionated site such as this one would be banned! They wouldn't support the War against Hackers either.

it is already being governed by the U.S. goverment, so i think that rather then having the U.S. rule it, the U.N. should. The U.S. has way to much power anyway.
