So, we have option 1. Option 1 is that ICANN remains independent from governmental control. It is free to mess things up as comprehensively as ever. That's not good. Let's look at option 2. Option 2 is to give it to the U.S. government. Those in charge now have less knowledge, and it's being championed by politicians with next to no knowledge about what it even does. Not to mention the fact that having it explicitly under the government will intensify the calls of nutcase nations to go with option 3: put it under the ITU. Can we have option 4, please?
