Subject: IOD=Monopoly?! This is absurd!


About domain name speculation:

NSI did not make anything against .com speculation,
just because it is impossible to do this!
In the same way, IOD's can't do anything against .web speculation
and nobody else can!

Starting .web registrations again cannot avoid speculation either,
since *new* registrants may register hundreds domains on the firts day!
I think that it is obvious and fair to assign the .web domains
to the ones who registered them *in good faith* at since 1996 (after IANA's authorization to IOD registry).

Finally, don't you think that Afilias (NSI + other registrars)
is monopoly, rather than IOD?!!!

As reported by the ICANN Yokohama Meeting Topic document, there is “widespread dissatisfaction about the absence of competition in domain name registration”.
If you give .web to NSI, dissatisfaction becomes complete...
