Dear DNS Stability Panel members, dear ICANN board members, Ladies and 
I want ask you to reevaluate the Bulgaria's application for Cyrillic ccTLD "бг" 
, because there are formal reasons to this, very well and professional stated 
by mr. George Todoroff in his comment here:
http://forum.icann.org/lists/fast-track-review-2010/msg00008.html .

I agree with his findings that "бг" Cyrillic ccTLD is in fact 50 % confusable 
to existing Latin character ccTLD "br", according to Unicode Technical Standard 
#39, (http://www.unicode.org/Public/security/revision-04/confusables.txt) and 
so formally can comply with the DNS Stability evaluation criteria as in the 
case of Russia's "рф".

Beside the formal reasons there also other informal and humane  reasons. I can 
understand that there are really bad people out there in the "wild" Internet 
abusing the  freedom and possibilities made available through Internet by using 
phishing and SPAM to mislead people by making them focus on the fake sites and 
possibly cause them damage as they steal their personal data or confidential 
information or by making other criminal acts.
The well respected people in the panel should think also about the 
possibilities which will open for all Bulgarian people with this "бг" ccTLD. 
This new ccTLD will make the Bulgarian Internet space so much approachable for 
everyone, that I believe this will be more beneficial for the whole Internet 
community, not only for the Bulgarian Internet community. This would be an act 
with the same meaning as when the Holy Church authorized the sermons to be in 
native language, instead of only Latin language, not used and almost not 
understood by any one.
Dear DNS Stability Panel and ICANN members, please reevaluate your decision and 
enable the use of Internet to be more approachable from all in Bulgaria.

With best regards,
Nikolay Popov
