Hi! Folks,

Are you not getting bored repeating the same misreading for 14 years 
as if you had discovered the hidden face of the moon?

The second paragraph simplly says that users are able to be free and 
there are intelligent ways not to be obliged to see what one does not 
want to see. People are free to say what they want, and free not to 
receive what the do not want.

Please do your home work on this issue before showing yourself 
entirely out of scope; One thing you can do is to read the ICANN 
authoritative position on the matter. 
http://www.icann.org/en/about/unique-authoritative-root. If you want 
to know more about the internet as it is and disucss it less as it is 
not; http://caida.org.

Sorry to be rough, but reading the same irrelevant thing for the 
250th time... obliges to respond the same thing for the 500th time to 
students or readers who believe they discovered the visible face of 
the moon :-)
