I think the internet is in danger of being seriously destabilized if ICANN 
proceeds with allowing uncapped domain pricing in new tlds which could then be 
done in older tlds like .com and .info and org. As well, with a looming 
depression on the horizon, as the State of New York made clear in an earlier 
post, I think it is unwise to proceed with a new tld rollout which may create 
all kinds of costs with the one above being the gravest.

At this point, I feel ICANN should be concerned only with making domain prices 
as low as possible and keeping the internet as safe as possible. It should 
abandon a new tld rollout, especially one that could see domain prices and 
general internet business costs skyrocket in a depression. ICANN should also 
reduce it's own cost and I think it's actions should be more transparent and 
subject to more supervision by Congress. There is a lot more improvement that 
needs to happen with the current tlds in terms of lower prices with no variable 
or unrestricted or tiered pricing possible, making sure expired names go into 
the rgp cycle, etc.
