Should the U.N. control the Internet?
On the U.N. agenda is an item which could give oversight of the Internet to a U.N. entity. "Later this month in Geneva, Switzerland, governments will gather to begin negotiations on a potential treaty that could crush the free flow of information online, according to experts. The diplomatic process will help lay the foundation for the upcoming “World Conference on International Telecommunications” in Dubai at the end of the year."-- Alex Newman, The New American, 22 Feb. 2012 16:11

Closing Statement from edward long
Of the seven votes cast six were "Absolutely not", and one was "Probably not".
There seems to be a concern about a need for sufficient control of antisocial elements, particularly as they involve young people. Otherwise this poll shows overwhelming support for the status quo.
