Then I invite you not to purchase any .Web domains when we're approved.

Just because something doesn't strike your fancy is not a reason to deny fair competition. I don't like Yugo automobiles - should they not be allowed to sell them?

The idea here is competition. ICANN should not be in the business of deciding who gets to compete based on anything other than objective technical criteria. ICANN is a technical coordination body, not a policy or regulatory body.

The whole idea behind a free market (which is what we had last time I checked) is to allow companies to try, and often fail.

That's all we want.
