1984 begins at 12:01 AMvisualops knows this is a meaningless policy, but then falls into inchoate paranoia:
ICANN does control the naming. they do not control the physical internet. But we always say “oh well they would never do that”. and we know how that ends up.visualops then cancels anything that look informed above:
it’s just unconscionable.Voluntaryist also thinks Trump will save us from this crisis he's made up:
what we need now, is Trumpnet.
This will be addressed by Trump very soon. We blast one trunk line and this is over!!We invented it— it is ours!!RoseofTexas is sure the antichrist is behind this, controlling Congress:
I actually have a feeling Trump will propose a decentralized internet, which is something we should’ve had a very long time ago. The reason we don’t have this now, in my opinion, is because high taxes, wasteful government spending, and less incentive for venture capitalists to invest in new ideas with this terrible economy.
And our representative just rolled over!! Bastards! Truly the antichrist is alive and well!!Electric Graffiti just wallows in despair:
“The Internet Takeover Is Happening”montag813 predicts the Internet is gonna be like Youtube:
