"...Image Online Design's dot web registry has been going on for over 5 1/2 years, why all of a sudden are we considered "opportunists""

People never consider people opportunist unless the purported opportunist has something they want.  I think the reason we are all beginning to hear grumbling from some is because they had the same opportunity every other .web registrant had, yet they chose not to participate.  Now that the approval of IOD's .web is on the horizon, they regret that.  The only thing left to do is complain and whine that "all the generic names are gone" (which is a lie), or "the name I wanted is gone" (which is more along the lines of a personal problem than a domain problem).

There are names registered in IOD's .web that I wanted, but you don't hear me complaining about it.  Why?  Because I respect other folk's property, for starters, and I also respect wisdom in any form.
