Subject: Ah, I think you have dot web mixed up with dot biz...

Dot biz is the "crappy" TLD...And if you are from the U.K you'll know what I am talking about.  Image Online Design's Dot web has been the top rated TLD in every single poll taken in the last 3 years.  Why do you think Afilias tried to apply for dot web???  So they could get dot info???

I think you are wrong about dot web for obvious reasons, but I will leave you to your opinions....Unfortunately some do not know the history of the DNS prior to 1998.  ICANN's mission was to fulfull the requirement of the White Paper....That meant introducing competition...Thus far no real competition in the name-space has been introduced...The 7 registrars selected to operate new TLDs do not represent "new" blood.....Things however will come full circle in 2002. Trust me.

Image Online Design's dot web will be selected in the next round.  I will just leave it at that.

Gregory
