The Internet Society and ISOC[edit]

I have never seen the Internet Society referred to as "the ISOC". ISOC is, I think, "not quite an acronym". --Alvestrand (talk) 06:17, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Quite right. I guess it's the official abbreviation. Wwwhatsup (talk) 07:12, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Anonymity[edit]

I'm just curious about the Internet Society's stance on user anonymity on the internet.

It is my opinion that an alias can allow us to share feelings we have without trying to conform to society's expectation of us. Furthermore, without anonymity, the internet would offer nothing new. Schalos (talk) 20:18, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Yet with anonymity comes all kinds of problems, people hiding behind false identities, and the general believe that nothing which happens on the internet matters. When you remove your identity, the notion follows, you are immune to anything and everything. Which is largely a myth perpetuated by the idea that most people are either too lazy to care or don't know how to find out someone's identity.--68.6.182.39 (talk) 22:00, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Can we get a consensus to remove the external links to the chapters? There is a tag on that section, but before I remove what looks like a lot of hard work, I want to make certain that it is appropriate, and that I am interpreting Wikipedia's external link policy correctly.
