Uh..er, ummm...okay.

Are you one of those people who think that everything on the Internet should be free, simply by virtue of the fact that you either 1) have paid your ISP, therefore everything after that is free, or 2) you simply deserve it?

Let me tell you this;  Nobody with any intelligence is going to sink funds into running a registry if they aren't making money, especially one (IOD's .web) that will at least be as large as the .com registry.

Or, do you propose to let the government run it with tax dollars? Isn't that a bit like how ICANN got started?
