Subject: Afilias, A New Cartel!


                        I can hear them now.... (Hey guys! Let's get together and form a big cartel of major registries and select among the most popular names! ".WEB", ".SHOP" and ".INFO" this way ICANN can't help but approve our application.)

We believe Afilias' unwanted application purverts the entire application process and seeks to not only steal away ".WEB" from IoDesign but seeks to create a single-powerful entity that intends to use it's lobbying power to set precedents at ICANN.

If there was ever a case of organizational conflict, Afilias has succeded in creating such a case.

If Afilias application is approved, I can (pardon the pun) only see ICANN being their regulatory, policy generating puppet.
