||Being up and running is no advantage
ICANN made it very clear in November 2000 that being up and running does not constitute
an advantage. Image Online Design had been up and running for over 4 years at that
point, and were soundly rejected. ICANN specifically rejected any benefits of being
up and running.|
Should ICANN take that into account now, it will be a clear sign
that the treatment of IOD was deliberately biased. On the other hand, I believe we
have all the evidence of that already.
I, for one, would not be claiming anything
such as being up and running as an advantage right now. You might be branded an alternative
root, or a .ORG squatter!
