First, there should not be one government running the internet. As it is
current going, the internet is going to fracture because countries like
China, Iran, and others have such strong filters on what their citizens
may access. The US Congress is preparing to totally commercialize the
internet and is likely to be followed by some of the less democratized
countries. Sooner or later, the rest of the world will just cut these
rogue states off.

Second, registering domain names should have a waiting time between
granting the name and actually using it. As it is now, most spam can not
be traced because the spammers set up a domain for a couple of days then
move on. Their checks bounce or they didn't even pay so they don't care.
While commerce has a legitimate purpose, that applies to very little of
what happens with e-mail spam. The majority of senders have forged or
hacked addresses headers. A system of preventing forged email headers

Thank you for the opportunity.
