And the point is, just because you and other people believe that the
government should not get involved in a particular issue does not mean
that issue is not part of "internet governance."  In English we borrow
from French the term "laissez faire" to generally describe this kind
of governance policy.  It most certainly is an issue of internet
governance, even if the laissez faire side wins the day on a given

So, did I misquote your prior message?  Given my use of the term
governance, do you still think that something is not an issue of
"internet governance" if a laissez faire attitude is the actual
approach taken, or if it is the "right" approach?
