(Reuters) - An unprecedented debate over how the global Internet is governed is set to dominate a meeting of officials in Dubai next week, with many countries pushing to give a United Nations body broad regulatory powers even as the United States and others contend such a move could mean the end of the open Internet.
In a closed-door meeting this weekend in Dubai, the telecommunications arm of the United Nations -- the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) -- plans to seize a big role in Internet governance.
What a joke. A bunch of backward fuckwits in the desert are going to decide what I can't do?
I don't get what it is about assholes out there that go "we really gotta put a stop to this internet thing..."
^ Agreed. What exactly are their reasons for having to regulate the internet? This is utter crap and a massive infringement on the last bastion of freedom of speech (which isn't even that free as it is).
I hope to fuck that people are going to stand up and protest this shit.
One of the articles up there gives a lot of good points about why shit kicker countries want a bit of control over the Internet. They want to charge companies in other countries for sending data to their country, they are scared of the power the Internet gives people when they are such a piece of shit weak government.
And I think the thing that nobody wants to point out is that most people that work in politics are cunts, and not just cunts, but stupid cunts, and uneducated cunts. You think politicians in QLD are fucking stupid? Try one from Africa in a dress that believes gays eat the poo poo and that witches are real.
I am insulted that it is the UN doing this, and I am insulted they would do it in a culturally disgusting place like Dubai.
