This contribution is by far the finest, I thought:

   Finally, in conclusion, as an American, I am saddened that the
   Internet seems to have been commandeered by a European based
   protocol. Was America so short of talent we had to buy
   the HTML protocol from Tom Berners-Lee at CERN ? 
   Think of the security implications of the worlds strongest economy,
   running an e-commerce protocol developed by a foreigner from Socialist
   Europe. Remember the wall has not been down for that long. Who knows
   what kind of trojans might be lurking within the depths of
   these complicated protocols.

There is just a tiny worry in my mind that maybe, just maybe, the
author was being serious.
