itwbennett writes: ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé hopes to make progress on preparations to take over running the world's central DNS servers from the U.S. government's National Telecommunications and Information Agency when the organization meets in London next week. 'I think this is a meeting where the ICANN community has to deal with the fact, the good fact, that its relationship with the U.S. government, which characterized its birth, its existence and growth, has now run its course,' Chehadé said.

    If the UN is any example, an independent ICAAN will turn into the corrupt instrument of the nations that compose it and will control the new ICANN and then a new regime will levy taxes on the users - and these taxes, which they will call fees, will be spent uncoltrollably to creat an edifice like the UN, 200% corrupt. THE US congress is similarly corrupt, as we see by the FVV and Internet lobbyists.

    I do not know how this can be prevented, apart by not letting it fall into the control of these crooks.

    That said, ICANN is already a little crooked...

    US government doesn't want, so don't even involve them unless you're simply telling them what you're about to do. US citizens tend to be nice people, but our government is a big gigantic predator. So do what you're gonna do, but realize the US government will only pretend to be negotiating, it's a delaying tactic.

    I'm barely familiar with the facts at all, but I gaurantee I'm correct.
