Thank you Ashok for the constructive intervention. I m glad that the suggestion has come up at the right stage of the on going discussion :-)
The bottom line is that There are political leaders in each country we have to respect that fact. Techies need to inform and influence the decisions of their political leaders accordingly in order to avoid such decisions as .ga issue.

Hence the need to have credible Policies is obvious.
We have to work with our leaders as long as there is a Policy to guide all in what is being done. 
Btw it depends on how individual government considers issues of its national importance.

That is all for now on this from me.

Kind regards

Interesting how easy it can be for government to just shut-down any internet resources within their country.... O yeah...! perhas should be a discussion topic at Baku!

@Prof Nii as er your query, below is the summary a gathered from the url provided by SM

Dotcom unveiled plans last week to re-launch his file-sharing empire on January 20.....The new site, www.me.ga, was to be hosted on Gabon's .ga domain...the site was set up to redirect traffic to another site hosted in France that would provide access to shared files

From the above i don't see any "unlawful" act at the moment (if there is law of Internet). I guess they "ga" only read history and acted based on that! Perhaps an opportunity to be on the news ;)
