    good for them. they're tired of NSA internet snooping and espionage.

    funny part is somehow the article tries to spin it like this might be bad for the internet's "open interconnected structure" and "it could encourage repressive governments to seek greater technical control over the Internet to crush free expression at home, experts say." o_O wat? sounds like what the u.s. gov't is already doing.

    The US doesn't want to "crush" -- except for fighting "piracy" and other "bad" things -- so much as it wants to know what's up. Who doesn't want that? ;)
