Subject: IOD can and will do it!


Yes, ICANN should have created several more TLD's by now.  The existence of these many ccTLD's proves that the much-touted concern about the 'stability of the Internet' is completely without merit.

More to the point, though, is that while ICANN should create more TLD's, the application of the one company with the technical expertise and financial strength to operate the sure-to-be-wildly-popular .web TLD was denied.

I doubt anyone would argue against making sure any company has the technical and financial resources to operate a TLD.  All the more reason for ICANN to approve IOD's .web!  I challenge anybody to provide FACTS why ICANN shouldn't approve IOD's .web.

ICANN is already on record as praising Afilias.  If Afilias is worthy of praise, then IOD is worthy of sainthood.
