I think the Internet needs to be as free as possible of all government
regulation and interference. Not only (may be especially) the US
government but all governments. The market should be allowed to
control what is content and how it should flow.

The government should control how the overall addressing is done and
insure that abuses (such as spam) are strictly enforce and punished.
But it should not put a moral or political control over the content.

Also it is very important that the providers of the backbone not be
allowed to charge for their service twice. I pay for my connection and
maybe I should be charged on the volume that I use.
