Then we definitely agree. The only reason I suggest ICANN be involved in
this one is that I don't believe a $50,000 registration fee should be
charged for someone wishing to create a public benefit TLD. I wish ICANN to
waive this fee and make concessions for the creation of dot NGO or NPO which
should be a restricted TLD and go to an operator that is a public benefit

Not my org for those wondering if I have an agenda. I don't wish to run it.
I just want there to be a legitimate nonprofit TLD and wish there was
representation for public benefit nonprofits within the ICANN supporting
