Re: Expectations

I'm not sure what "speach" is, but I fail to see how NMI imperils my freedom of speech, or my freedom of expression in general. They're going to stop me from saying things? That's rather outside their remit, don't you think?

Even if NMI tried to censor objectionable expression on the Internet (for some values of censor, objectionable, expression, and Internet), what makes you believe they'd be at all effective? And that's assuming they get everything they're trying for.

Personally, I think NMI is a dumb idea with no significant probability of any success. But my guess is that if it did achieve its goals, we'd just have much the same sort of opacity, cronyism, and corruption that we see in ICANN today. New boss same as the old boss.
