                        I run a .BIZ supplying .INFO for
.PROfessionals under
a .COM
that was
intended to be the extension for commerce/commercial business. Why in
the world would new domain extensions be created that "overlap"?
Should any new .COMmerce extension like .info, .biz or .pro ever
become popular. The navigational structure of the internet will be
distroyed. We mine as well use the numbers assigned to create words
people can indentify with. This is terrorism! When the entities
entrusted become corrupted, capitalism and democracy vanish. The
internet "Gold Rush" was over. The Trademark infringements were
cleaned up for the most part. Only about 10% of the domains are built.
I NEVER thought my business would be attacked by potential dilution
from the creation of 3 new extensions intended for commerce, let alone
even one. Does the internet exist just for the benefit of the
Registrars? Think of all the businesses under development that have
not been issued TM's yet. It can take 2 years. Think of the costs of
time and money believing our name in commerce was secure! IN COM WE
TRUST! When the Registrar's shelves are bare, will they have .cat,
.dog, .pet .table and .chair? I doubt Business.com is very happy about
.biz after spending 7 million. They will not stop until every word in
on the other side of the DOT! It's pathetic, it's greed, it's
racketeering!

As more people type "what they want".com to navigate, as more and more
sites are developed. The intent of the domain naming structure was
working as intended. It was perfect! We don't all want to be dependent
on search engines forever. Generic dot-coms are the most valuable
because of their navigational value. I payed $10,000.00 for my generic
and $150,000.00 in development. Now some jerk registered my "bread &
butter" with a fake TM 123-234-456789 And the solution is I'm invited
to "spin the wheel" at WIPO's Casino for like $295 for a "chance" at
securing this name "just" to keep it dormant forever. To the onlooker,
ICANN, WIPO, NSI VeriSign, RealNames and all the other Registrars look
to be "in bed" together and are "Generating Disputes For Profit" with
no regard for the navigational structure of the Internet or the
people, like myself who have invested so much to provide informational
services under the exclusive use of a valuable generic domain.

The Internet needs to be nurtured and protected. We can connect world 
trade and form a new global ecconomy. It's a wonderful opportunity we
can all work for, and benefit from. Now we have a new Taliban at work,
A Internet Mafia that seeks to profit short term until no domain name
will have any value and no natural navigation will be possible. Just a
confusing mess of names and extensions. And we'll all be forced to pay
$1.00 for every "click" at the established search engines. New
extensions will spell nothing but problems when the overlap into the
existing ones. Even .Museum is pointless. They can use a .org and most
are "non-profit". The approval of new extensions is a ploy to destroy
the navigational structure of the net. And people are PAYING FOR IT IN
MORE WAYS THEN ONE!!!

ALL NEW DOMAIN EXTENSIONS ARE "FOOLS GOLD". DOT COM IS KING!!! STOP
THE ICANN TALIBAN! THE WAR ON TERRORISM IS NOW ATTACKING WORLD TRADE
ONLINE. IT's a DOT CON!...........................................
