In a move no doubt intended to stop my tyrannical rule as the new King of the Blogs, the United Nations sought to bring the Internet under their ever-growing mandate today.

And as the Internet becomes more important to our daily lives, attempts by the UN or any other worldly body should indeed be looked upon with contempt and suspicion.
