With regard to the proposed BIZ, .INFO, and .ORG gTLD Registry Agreements ..
One cannot help but be suspicious of the motives of the ICANN in wishing to
change the current contracts before their due renewal dates ..and exremely
suspicious of the manner in which the so called "public commentary period'
has been allocated to a time of year when most of the western , english
speaking
world is on holiday ..this would appear to be an attempt to make changes
with potentially
massive benefits for certain parties ( registrys) at the expense of domain
name
registrants ..and this done in a apparent cynical sham of asking for "public
commentary"  when
no -one is around to hear about it ..

What has the ICANN to hide  ?
Well maybe the fact that these changes would allow the possibilty of facing
unlimited
( could be millions of dollars per name per year ) domain name renewal
charges on existing
.biz or .org or .info domain names ..
And where would those potential millions of dollars in extorted ( "pay up or
lose your domain name" )
go ? .....Who are the ICANN's friends .....who are the members leaving soon
..why the apparent unseemly
haste to get these changes through ?..and why so quietly ..?

This smells of at best naïvety in the hope that registries wont increase
pricing ..and if
the ICANN board  has members that are so naïve ..they are not fit to be
there ..
at worst it maybe smells of attempting to  facilitate the piracy and
extortion of domain names ..

If this is allowed to happen the ICANN will be veiwed by the worlds
webmasters as either
stupid or corrupt or both ...for now the timing certainly seems to
smell like something devious is rotting in a dark corner of the internet ,
trying to hide from the light of day whilst it plots with it's friends ..on
how to gather
the maximum information and money for themselves ..from the work of others
on their domains ..

This.. apparent furtive  step in trying to steal the internet ..must be
exposed to the light ..
it must not be allowed to succeed ..
