	why do you think com-priv (US centric coverage on privatization and
	commercialization) and nanog (North American Network Operators)
	have a lock on defining an Internet AUP?

	Why not let the Africans, Chinese, Indians, Europeans and South
	Americans do it?  (We'll leave out the Japanese, Australians, Asians
	and North Americans becasue they don't count... :)

	You seem to be just a tad deluded as to the relative 
	importance of a few white males.  Perhaps we should
	figure out how to get a real cross-section of the
	Internet populace first, then worry about global
	policy.  Or better yet, focus on the policy for and ensure that others that you peer 
	directly with understand your policy.  
	Think globally, Act locally.  Get your own house
	in order first.
