The Purpose of the DNS system is to Enable a stable layer of memorable names so that
people can remember how to find each other on the network.
ICANN should have gone
to certain 2nd level domain owners and encouraged expansion of the DNS system as

level domains to others.
An increased expansion of the namespace at the first
level will result in a situation similar to someone who places ALL of their directories
on the root of their hard drive without using sub folders. The result is an unruly

Zones are designed to grow by expanding downward, 1st level to 2nd level to 3rd level
Furthermore, expanding The TLDs destroys the memorability aspect of the
Domain System, its greatest value! Not only are we going to have more confusion
and disputes, but people will not be able to remember their way around as well.
DNS is designed to expand so that the load on systems and organizations is distributed.
Expanding the TLDs and encouraging organizations to register more and more 2nd level

At a time when many internet centric companies are shrinking, adding
.biz and .info has forced many to spend money and time just to try to prevent a splinter
in their identity on the Internet. The desperation involved in buying as many chances
as possible in the face of unknown odds has been insult and injury to everyone concerned.
the persuit of stability, more TLDs should not be created and ICANN should encourage
a distribution of the load on DNS servers instead of concertrating the load at the
