The only truth in your post was the fact that .web would strongly compete with the
dominant .com. I am pleased that you seem to understand that .web clearly is
more applicable to WEB content than .com.
However, beyond that point, you presented
information that is best described as something I would scrape off the bottom of
my shoes after a pleasant walk through a pig pen. Even the ICANN board members
you say hope read your thesis would be hard-pressed to agree with you. After
all, the truth is the truth, even if you don't want to believe it.

Whatever 'unsufficient' means...I assume you meant 'insufficient'. Show us
the proof you have.
3) "IOD has no support from the Internet community."
I will point out that no other TLD applicant had more support from the Internet community,

In your reply, please list how these numbers compare with other applicants, such
We all look forward to viewing the information you will present.
I am certain you have reams of data that have somehow been unavailable to every other
person who posts here. In my opinion, we should be thanking you, because you

past...a group of people who spew statements as fact, yet never seem to be able to
back them up. Please do occasionally post, lest the rest of us forget the caliber
of people we are up against.
