||ICANN Board Members (RE: Image Online Design & .web)
ICANN Board Members:|
This message has been posted in support of Image Online Design
and its .web domain registry. Although the Reconsideration Committee has recommended
the Board 'stay the course' in its denial of IOD's application, I encourage you all
to think long and hard before following that recommendation.
Each of you is well
aware of the situation, and the controversy surrounding the denial of IOD's .web
application. I could list here many reasons why I, and many other people, view
this action as one that most certainly did not have the Internet community's best
interest in mind. However, I am sure you all know these reasons well, so for
the sake of concision I won't list them again.
Now, the opportunity to do what
is fair and just is before you. I believe each of you know that the Internet
and its millions of users would benefit tremendously if IOD were to be allowed to
operate its .web registry on equal ground with .com, .net, and .org.
ICANN is truly committed to a more useful and robust Internet, then I believe IOD
and .web are worthy of a positive action by your organization.
