 thank you for your kind words and attempts to educate.  clearly these items are
 critical for North American Network Operations (NANOG) and should be widely promoted
 and discussed ...  But NOT, I think, here.

 may i humbly suggest that there exist other, better fora for discussion of these specific
 issues and ways/means to address them;

 Aleviating HUNGER
 Global Peace - where none take offense
 Exploitation of the helpless
 Definition of rights, both human and non-human.

 I would like to point you here:  http://www.un.org/en/rights/  which actually has the charter
 to work on the issues that are so pressing in your mind.

 Can we kill this thread (oh dear, i'm advocating violence again...) and get back to Network
 Operations?  Please?
