"Afilias should either stand behind its product and promote it with more energy and
creativity or explain why they are not able to that."|

"Is it lack of money?"
not! Wasn't a company who was awarded a TLD supposed to have funds secured
for, at a minimum, advertising and marketing? Or did Afilias spend all its
secured monies on a single IBM 8088 server (you know, the one with 32 MB RAM and
a screaming 2.5 GB hard drive...)?
