||The market *has* decided....They don't want one company controlling several TLDs...
That is what is killing "New.net"....and
also because they are creating a system outside the root we all use for commerce
and information....If they want to do that they are free to do so....but don't frick
up the internet *I* use to sell things, and rely on it bringing people to my website...
are supposed to be a genius at this Jim, and your comments reflect otherwise...
you don't see a problem with all kinds of TLDs running around on different systems,
then you are really posting on the wrong board...Maybe you should stick with the
dribble on New.net..
Having said that, I don't think what ICANN has done and is
doing is healthy for the internet either...That is why we are here, to express our
opinions on what will work....
I think a registry has to the "community" they can
run a TLD"...New.net certainly has shown they can.
I think a registry should only
control one TLD...not several...New.net fails miserably there...How many are they
up to....500??? Does the "2001 Version of Name-Space" fit the bill here...
think a registry should be robust....If New.net were to upload their TLDs to the
legacy root...What becomes of all those "plug-ins" running around on other systems...
think a registry should adopt the "single root" authority concept...New.net fails
this...They believe that the "market" should decide...Well, if the market consists
of a "unique" population that only have access to Earthlink, NetZero, etc, and have
downloaded their plug-in, then I guess they have shown that it could work, for a
very small amount of the population....
I could continue, but then it would seem
like I am piling on...
