Only the need for clear, unhysterical thinking.
Obviously, if you have a tld like
say .afilias, and the tld is not in the root, you are not going to use that form
to send an email. You will use a form that works like say scam.afilias.new.net. And
you will know to use that form because if someone is advertising their new.net site,
it will be made clear to use that long form or that they will have to download the
plugin with certain restrictions. But that is what is necessary at this point.
It is not the big scary confusing thing that icann paints it to be in their own interest.
We need to end the parroting and we need people to think for themselves. If you think
or if anyone else thinks they could create their own tld, lets see you try it.
Afilias, with their gross incompetence, wouldnt last 5 seconds.
Icann is very
scared of New.net and for good reason. New.net is gonna kick their ass.
we need a governing body like icann. But as new.net suggests, lets restrain them
to a simple naming and authorization role and keep the actual decisions about
which tlds are selected to be approved to the market, a fairer system. A system that
needs to be worked out but definitely something seperate from icann.
its very beginning has served icann notice. From the immediate sudden finding of
funds to allow the new tlds to proceed (what was it gonna be march 2002?) to icann
singling out new.net in policy papers, new.net is creeping death for the ineffective
and poor serving icann.
You guys act like icann is going to change. Wake up.
Without someone forcing their hand it will never happen. Just wait till icann uses
this afilias disaster as an example of why we need to move even slower with new tld
creation. It will be years before they approve anything else. Its a big circle game.
Look at .web. .Web supporters think icann we actually approve them. Maybe in ten
years but even that is doubtful. They are the model for icann sucker poster tlds.
gives new.net more time to build and expand their base of partnerships and isps and
hopefully, more browsers. Once new.net has a hold on the major browsers, in the words
of Bob Dylan, its all over baby blue.
Unlike your icann/afilias thing here, new.net
has a lot of respect and support especially internationally and with its customers
and its just a matter of time until new.net makes icann in its present form irrelevant
O yes the
times, they are a changing.
