Trump is a Troll.

Some of us judge a president not by what he says, or the color of his skin, but by what he does.

Trump is getting some important idiocies rolled back behind the scenes.

Sure he is creating a few more in the process, but history will judge.

The IETF should reflect that the Internet and the RFC process worked without any government involvement other than the original research grant to create a global network that is one of the wonders of the world.

And its under threat from politicisation. Net neutrality. Encryption backdoors. Anti-trolling legislation. Etc.

All of which were rolling forward nicely under Obama, and may actually be less emphasised under Trump.
