Great point. Government to take veiw  regulations in terms of technicality
than policy aspect.

I strongly support Avri inputs.

Warm wishes.

I have been reading this exchange with interest.

Lately I have been looking at government control of the Internet, not so
much from a normative view as from a circumvention point of view.  As
governments put up all sorts of barriers and filters and 'kill-switchs' and
such (helped by their handmaidens in industry - though sometimes it is tough
to know who is the handmaiden and who is the mistress), how hard it is to
circumvent government control has become a key issue for me.  It is an
interesting test of the Internet and its design as non-disruptable
communications medium to see what efforts need to be taken to insure
connectivity in the face of government policies of disruption. I admit that
this is more a technical concern than a policy concern, but it has become
interesting to view government's role/repsonsiblity in the Internet from
that perspective.
