& leaving not enough space any more for the gifted & charismatic 
avantgarde who deserves ruling the net, right?

ancient Greek anti/democrats such as Plato at least put the same notion 
into a bit more polite form of expression: "hoi polloi" denoting "the 
many".
(The denunciation is just in the rhyme: Greeks despised rhymes as being 
tasteless & child/like) 

Post/scrypt: dots are elitist (top level domain). The age of slashes is 
dawning.
