        Dear Sir,
             I am writing in support of new.net, an alternative domain registrar. Over the last six weeks, new.net has proven that it possesses the ability to effectively manage and operate a registry. While you initially incorrectly described new.net as a "cute trick", new.net is not a trick at all. Rather, new.net is an ingenious new system, dedicated to alleviateing crowding and the creation of a naming centric internet.

   With this in mind, Icann should expeditiously enter into negotiations with new.net to formalize and ratify their registry as an official Icann root. Failure to do so may force netizens to choose between Icann and New.net and lead to tremendous confusion. Given Icann's reputation and slowness to introduce new tlds, more netizens will probably follow the four ISPs and forty million users who already access new.net's domains.
