I agree completely.  There is an artificial congestion in the namespace.  We don't need any more TLDs?  I suppose that is true, if one is satisfied with a 33 character .com (or a second-rate .info or .buz...whoops, I mean .biz.  Sorry, I was confusedů).

Come on, folks.  Wake up and smell the bandwidth.  More TLDs won't create confusion.  That is a lot like saying the city I live in can't build more roads because people would then have a greater chance of getting lost.

The 'lower quality sites' argument is a new one to me.  Are we now saying that only those who have been trained in HTML (with a valid ICANN-issued license) can possess a good domain name, because otherwise they might create a badly designed site?  Good lord.  Welcome to the Internet Gestapo in its infancy, laid out in an easy-to-read format on ICANN.org.
