Creating of independent from ICANN p2p-based alternative DNS

Only way

Mate, I've been avoiding the US like a Bolshevik plague, for years. If I've got to do a FTP download, or something, the US is the last place I'll look for a mirror. You can almost feel that freak, Chertoff, breathing all over your shoulder. I go to civilised countries, like Ireland, for my downloads.

Re: Only way

Yeah. I choose US-related mirrors or software projects only as the last available option too. I prefer to use anything from European ones, like Germany, Norway, Ireland (why not?), Finland, Holland and so on. However, some of them, like Sweden, also do "draconian" things like with well-known Pirate Bay or Wikileaks. Anyway, it is much better than in Russia, where I live :-)

I read the local English press there and suchlike, but nobody says too much about local net freedoms. Maybe, they don't like to say too much?
